PASCUAL MATEO, Carlos et al. Ultrasound diagnosis of intratesticular varicocele. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2005, vol.58, n.9, pp.963-965. ISSN 0004-0614.

OBJECTIVES: Varicocele is a relatively frequent entity; in most cases venous dilation only involves the extratesticular portion, but 2% of the cases present intratesticular dilation. We report one case of left intratesticular varicocele. METHODS/RESULTS: We report the case of a 25-yearold male patient referred for study of left testicular pain, whose work up only found left intratesticular varicocele. CONCLUSIONS: Intratesticular varicocele is an infrequent entity which can be associated with testicular pain, scrotal mass and infertility or may be asymptomatic. The diagnosis is established by Doppler ultrasound; if symptomatic, it may be treated by spermatic vein ligation.

Keywords : Intratesticular varicocele; Testicular pain.
