Testicular infarction due to epididymitis

Testicular ischemia secondary to non responding epididymitis to antibiotics is rare.

Color flow Doppler ultrasound is required to asses the involved testicle in patients with epididymitis who responded initially to antibiotics treatment and later developed pain and tenderness and fevers during the course of treatment.

In this case, no flow was detected six days after initial antibiotic therapy and patient had ongoing pain, tenderness and febrile episodes while on broad spectrum IV antibiotics.

Surgical exploration and orchiectomy was performed after color flow Doppler ultrasound showed no flow in the affected testicle.
