Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Contralateral hydrocele formation secondary to irradiation, radical retroperitoneal lymphadenectomy, or both, in the treatment of tumor of the testis has, to our knowledge, never before been reported. Our experience with 8 patients in whom hydrocele occurred after the combined modalities of therapy prompted this report. Because these benign hydroceles cannot be differentiated from a second testicular neoplasm on the basis of symptom complex, duration, or time interval after therapy, high inguinal exploration is mandatory in every case.
