Brucellosis is an endemic disease in Turkey, and testicular abscess is a rare and frequently misdiagnosed complication of brucellosis. In the literature there are only seven reported cases, and all were treated with both medical and surgical therapy. We report a case of brucellar testicular abscess treated with medical therapy only. Although the patient recovered clinically at the end of 6 weeks, the regression of the testicular lesion could not be observed until after 5 months.
