Tuberculous epididymo-orchitis is a rare complication of intravesical Bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) therapy for urothelial cancer of the bladder. We present such a case, describe its sonographic appearance and review the literature. The difficulties in diagnosing this condition based on imaging alone, given the extensive overlap with the appearance of bacterial epididymo-orchitis, malignant testicular disease and testicular torsion, are discussed. Adequate knowledge of tuberculous epididymo-orchitis is of capital importance in order to ensure a proper diagnosis and treatment.
