Scrotal pyoceles are typically a complication of epididymo-orchitis or testicular abscess but can also occur following trauma or surgery. The purulent fluid collection generally arises from communication between the infected testicle or testicular abscess and an existing hydrocele, through the mesothelial lining of the tunica vaginalis..
The pathology report on a testicular germ cell tumor should include the following information: Tumor type: The histologic type of tumor present. If the tumor is of mixed type, the components should be listed, in order of relative abundance. The pathologist may endeavor to give a numeric estimate of Malignant mesothelioma (MM) arising from the serosal membranes of the tunica vaginalis testis (TVT) is rare.

In patients with von Hippel-Lindau disease (VHL), epididymal cysts are. characteristically limited to the efferent ductules. VHL-associated epididymal cysts have a peculiar morphology with predominance of clear cells, and often evolve into cystadenomas. They are usually diagnosed in adult patients, with no evidence of congenital lesions Encysted hydrocele also called spermatic cord hydrocele, spermatic cord cyst or cyst of cordon is collection of loculated fluid along the spermatic cord. It is separated from and located above the testicle and the epididymis without communication with the peritoneal cavity LAWRENCE M. WEISS, in Modern Surgical Pathology (Second Edition), 2009 Reactive Mesothelial Hyperplasia. Mesothelial hyperplasia represents a normal reaction to injury. The healing of disrupted serosa includes the multiplication and migration of mesothelial cells from the edges of the injured area; it may also include repopulation from free-floating mesothelial cells or possibly transformation. Filarial hydrocele is thought to be the consequence of lymphatic damage caused by adult worms. Chyluria, which results from rupture of dilated lymphatics into the renal pelvis, can occur as a manifestation of bancroftian filariasis. Microscopic hematuria and proteinuria are also found in LF infected patients. Cough, fever, marked eosinophilia.
Ultrasound. Ultrasound is a proven and safe diagnostic procedure. Ultrasound showed 100% accuracy in the evaluation of hydroceles, haematoceles and paratesticular masses, but was less informative in testicular abscesses (80%) and epididymo-orchitis (77%). 2 Ultrasound was able to distinguish accurately between the normal and a pathological scrotum. .

A hydrosalpinx is a condition that occurs when a Fallopian tube is blocked and fills with serous or clear fluid near the ovary (distal to the uterus). The blocked tube may become substantially distended giving the tube a characteristic sausage-like or retort-like shape. The condition is often bilateral and the affected tubes may reach several centimeters in diameter Testicular lymphoma is a rare extranodal subtype of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma affecting the male testicles and is often pathologically diagnosed as an extranodal diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) of the testis. It is a rare cancer of the testis, amounting to less than ten percent of such cancers. The disease tends to have an aggressive. CONCLUSION. Juvenile granulosa cell tumor is a rare testicular sex cord-stromal neoplasm in infancy. The vast majority of cases present prior to 6 months of age, while other pediatric testicular tumors present later in life. The tumors do not cause precocious puberty or abnormally elevated serum AFP levels Definition. An adenomatoid tumor is a benign neoplasm of mesothelial origin that can be found in both female and male genital tracts, but it is more commonly found in the male adnexa, where it is the most common benign neoplasm. Adenomatoid tumors represent 30% of the tumors of the testicular adnexa and 60% of benign tumors of these structures The most common nonacute scrotal conditions include varicocele, hydrocele, epididymal cyst and spermatocele, testicular cancer, chronic epididymitis, and cryptorchidism. Acute scrotal pain in adults and scrotal disorders in children are discussed separately. (See Acute scrotal pain in adults and Evaluation of nontraumatic scrotal pain or.
A spermatocele (also called a spermatic or epididymal cyst) is a fluid-filled sac that grows in the epididymis -- a tightly coiled tube about 20 feet long where the sperm matures as it passes. An epididymal cyst is a harmless little fluid-filled growth on a man's testicle (testis). They are quite common and don't usually require treatment. Many men feel them and are concerned they have testicular cancer, but a doctor can usually tell the difference Overview. Mantle cell lymphoma is a rare lymphoma.Lymphoma is a type of cancer that starts in your white blood cells. There are two forms of lymphoma: Hodgkin's and non-Hodgkin's.Mantle cell. Nuck's hydroceles, which develop in a protruding part of the parietal peritoneum into the female inguinal canal, are rare abnormalities and a cause of inguinal swelling, mostly resulting in pain. They appear when this evagination of the parietal peritoneum into the inguinal canal fails to obliterate. Our review of the literature on this topic included several case reports and two case series. A 49-year-old woman presented to the hospital with a right inguinal swelling. On examination, we suspected hydrocele of the canal of Nuck (HCN) or an appendiceal or retroperitoneal tumor. Surgery for diagnosis and removal of the mass revealed that it was large and located in the preperitoneal cavity

No sex predilection has been reported. This condition is caused by a ductal plate malformation with deficient re-modeling of the primitive ductal plate [5, 9] This article discusses the common benign cysts found in the vagina and vulva. While not commonly encountered in routine surgical pathology practice, these cysts are a relatively frequent occurrence. The cysts are often asymptomatic and do not come to clinical attention. Cysts of the vagina and vulva can be classified as embryologic or non-embryologic in origin, with müllerian and mesonephric. Hydronephrosis 1. Hydronephrosis Submitted by ; Vinayak Ambekar 2.

Sertoli cell tumours of the testis are uncommon sex cord stromal tumours. They are less common than Leydig cell tumours of the testis. Epidemiology May present in both paediatric and adult males, depending on the histologic subtype. Clinical. Primary testicular lymphoma (PTL) is an uncommon and aggressive form of extranodal non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) accounting for <5% of testicular malignancies and 1% to 2% of NHL cases. 1 With a median age at diagnosis of 66 to 68 years, 2-5 PTL is both the most common testicular malignancy in men age >60 years and the most common bilateral testicular neoplasm. 6 Population-based studies have. Mesothelioma is classified as either benign or malignant. As implied by their names, benign mesothelioma is non-cancerous, while malignant mesothelioma is a hard-to-treat cancer. Cause, symptoms and treatment are all differentiating factors between the two forms of the diseases that can help a patient better understand his or her prognosis Mycoses are infections caused by fungi. They may be caused by dermatophytes (e.g., Trichophyton ), yeast (e.g., Candida ), or molds (e.g., Aspergillus ). In immunocompetent individuals, mycoses usually result in local infection, which can be treated with local antifungals. Fungal infections may cause systemic infection in immunocompromised.

Progression to invasive urothelial cancer is believed to occur via 2 molecular pathways: hyperplasia/papillary (70-80%) and flat/dysplasia (20-30%) pathways, both are associated with chr. 9 losses at initiation. Majority in flat pathway progress to invasive carcinoma , and is associated with abnormalities in p53 and Rb genes.; Hyperplasia pathway is associated with HRAS and EGFR mutations, and. A femoral hernia lies in the femoral canal, medial to the femoral vein. Because of the narrowness of the femoral ring (the opening that forms the neck of a femoral hernia), it is more likely than an inguinal hernia to become incarcerated. Herniography can be performed to outline the hernial sac and contents PUJ obstruction refers to a narrowing of the junction, resulting in obstruction to the flow of the urine from the kidney to the ureter.
