11/17. Torsion of spermatocele: a newly described entity with 2 case reports.

    We describe, to our knowledge, the first 2 cases of torsion of a spermatocele. This condition should be considered in the differential diagnosis of an acute scrotum in the adult. ( info)

12/17. Primary intrascrotal nontesticular schwannoma.

    A supratesticular intrascrotal mass clinically mimicking a spermatocele was found to be a scrotal neoplasm histologically identified as a schwannoma. We herein present the first case of intrascrotal schwannoma to our knowledge. ( info)

13/17. Pseudomalignant cytologic presentation of spermatic hydrocele fluid.

    An unusual cytologic presentation of spermatic hydrocele fluid is reported. The aspirate contained highly atypical cells, exhibiting marked anisocytosis and nuclear abnormalities strongly suggestive of cancer. On histologic examination the lesion displayed pseudosarcomatous fasciitis in the cyst wall and foci of atypical reactive mesothelial hyperplasia in the lining. This case illustrates a potential pitfall in the cytology of spermatic hydrocele fluid. ( info)

14/17. adult paratesticular tumors: report of two cases.

    Paratesticular tumors are uncommon tumors, most being found incidentally at autopsy. The most common benign paratesticular tumor is the adenomatoid tumor. A somewhat less frequent benign paratesticular tumor, papillary cystadenoma, accounts for approximately 33 percent of all the primary epididymal tumors and is frequently seen in patients with von hippel-lindau disease. Malignant tumors are rare. Of these, rhabdomyosarcoma is the most frequent. Seen almost exclusively in the pediatric population, paratesticular rhabdomyosarcomas account for 7 percent of childhood rhabdomyosarcomas. We describe two cases of paratesticular tumors in adults: a papillary cystadenoma of the epididymis in a 72-year old male, and an incidental rhabdomyosarcoma in a 49-year old male. ( info)

15/17. Congenital absence of vas deferens treated by artificial spermatocele constructed from the tunica vaginalis; report of six cases.

    Six patients with congenital absence of the vas deferens were treated by artificial spermatoceles (ASCs) in an attempt to collect sperm for subsequent artificial insemination (AI). The ASC was constructed from a flap of tunica vaginalis from the patient. Sperm were aspirated from the ASC each month; there was wide variation in the concentration of sperm recovered [33.0 /- 48.2 x 10(6) mL-1 (range 0.1-200)] and motility and normal morphology of the sperm were 19.0 /- 17.9% and 48.8 /- 23.4% respectively. Although a total of 14 cycles of AI was performed using the aspirated sperm, pregnancy did not result. Both poor sperm recovery and poor motility contributed to this failure. The condition of the epididymis observed during scrotum examination is reported. It is suggested that in some patients with congenital absence of vas deferens, the paired wolffian ducts may differ from each other in their development. ( info)

16/17. Torsion of spermatocele and aplasia of the vas deferens. A case report.

    Torsion of a spermatocele combined with aplasia of the vas deferens is described. The purpose of this case report is that this rare condition should not be omitted from the differential diagnosis of the acute scrotum in childhood. The authors also support that the term "spermatocele" could be used in the non semen producing age of childhood, based upon the non age-dependent pathologic criteria. ( info)

17/17. Intratesticular spermatocele.

    High resolution ultrasound has increased our awareness of benign testicular cysts that appear to arise from the intratesticular sperm conduit system of the intratesticular ducts of the mediastinum and rete testis. The location of these benign cysts in the area of the mediastinum and rete testis and the absence of signs of a germ cell tumor may permit testicle preservation. These benign cysts may contain sperm. We present a case of a benign sperm-containing cyst with visible communication to the rete testis, designated an intratesticular spermatocele and managed with testicle preservation. ( info)
