Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Dystrophic calcified nodule of the testicle represents an exceptional lesion with an unknown etiology and controversial diagnostic approach. There are very few reports in the literature that have examined this feature. Here, we report the fourth case of dystrophic testis nodule, identified in a 46-year-old man who presented the urologist with a palpable mass on his left testicle and no other symptoms. Histopathological findings were discussed and pooled with those of all previously published series. We believe that this description is particularly innovative because of the absence of symptoms and testicular pain associated with the lesion, and interesting as an attempt to determine the recognition of this rare entity.
