1/17. Pronounced cystic transformation of the rete testis. MRI appearance.

    BACKGROUND: Cystic transformation of the rete testis is a little-known partial or complete obstruction of the spermatozoa-containing secretion of the head of the epididymis. Depending on its severity, either ectasia or a cystic transformation occurs, which spreads to the network of convoluted seminiferous tubules in the mediastinum testis. Findings in contrast-enhanced MRI examinations are characteristic and may help to differentiate this benign entity from malignant neoplasia. The authors present two pronounced cases in different stages, documenting the broad spectrum of possible involvement. ( info)

2/17. Multilocular spermatocele: a case report.

    We describe a case of a multilocular spermatocele. Ultrasound examination revealed several cystic spaces at the head of the left epididymis. Epididymal tumor could not be excluded, and therefore surgical exploration was performed. Histopathological examination of the specimen revealed a multilocular spermatocele arising from the rete testis. Most spermatoceles remain small and rarely present marked clinical problems. but they are occasionally large, and may simulate a solid tumor. ( info)

3/17. Torsion of spermatocele: a rare manifestation.

    Torsion of a spermatocele on its pedicle is an extremely rare clinical condition that mimics acute testicular torsion. This rare condition has not been well characterized. Here, we report a case of torsion of a spermatocele. The present case is the 5th case of torsion of a spermatocele and the first report in a patient with a history of scrotal trauma. A tender cystic mass adjacent to the normally appearing testicle in the scrotum is highly significant for the differentiation from other types of acute scrotum. Torsion of a spermatocele should be considered a differential diagnosis of acute scrotum in adolescents and adults. ( info)

4/17. Primary bilateral spermatocele.

    We report the case of a bilateral, relatively huge, multilocular spermatocele diagnosed at sonography with surgical and pathological correlation. A 45-year-old man presented with bilateral, large inguinoscrotal masses. He had had the masses since his adolescence and their size gradually increased in the past 5 years. Scrotal ultrasonographic examination showed cystic fluid masses that were 65 x 45 x 50 mm in size on the right and 55 x 45 x 40 mm in size on the left side in multilocular spaces. The cystic masses were excised via bilateral inguinoscrotal incision staying near the body of the epididymis. The patient had fathered three children with no fertility problem. ( info)

5/17. spermatocele: a rare complication of rectal surgery and radiotherapy. Case report.

    A 47-year-old man developed a presacral mass after abdominoperineal resection, which is combined with pre and postoperative radio-chemotherapy for carcinoma of the rectum. CT-guided biopsy and cytological examination of the mass revealed no malignancy but spermatocele, which is a very unusual complication of rectal surgery. ( info)

6/17. Torsion of a spermatocele: a case report and review of the literature.

    We report a case of torsion of a spermatocele in an adolescent. This condition has been described previously in adults. We recommend its consideration in the differential diagnosis of the acute scrotum in adolescents. ( info)

7/17. in vitro fertilization with spermatozoa from alloplastic spermatocele.

    This case report describes successful IVF of oocytes of a 22-year-old female with epididymal spermatozoa aspirated from alloplastic spermatocele of the husband presenting with bilateral congenital absence of the vas deferens. Motile spermatozoa were aspirated from the reservoir 3 months after implantation. Abortion occurred 22 days after embryo replacement. ( info)

8/17. Retrovesical rare tumor: the schistosomial spermatocyst.

    A case of large retrovesical tumor in a 50 year-old man is reported here. The diagnosis of schistosomial spermatocyst was made by histopathology. The authors underline the difficulty of the topographic diagnosis in large retrovesical masses. ( info)

9/17. Caudal view. Aid in testicular scanning.

    A false-positive scan for testicular torsion can be obtained in a scrotal scan when either a hernia or hydrocele overlies the testicle. The case of a patient in whom a false-positive scan was avoided by the use of a caudal view is reported. ( info)

10/17. "spermatocele" following abdominoperineal resection and radiotherapy.

    A 60-year-old man developed repeated spermatic fluid collection in the small pelvis following abdominoperineal resection and radiotherapy for carcinoma of the rectum. The "spermatocele" was due to a fistula originating in the vasoseminal vesicle junction. This complication has not been described previously. ( info)
