Actinomycosis of the testicle is a rare clinical entity. A review of the literature reveals only 7 case reports. Patients require prolonged therapy with antibiotics, usually penicillin. Many patients with less severe forms of the disease improve on antibiotics alone. Surgical intervention is reserved for confirming the diagnosis, treatment of abscesses, excision of sinus tracts and drainage. We report case 8 in the literature and review the previous reports.
