GALLEGO VILAR, Daniel et al. Brucella Spp orchiepididymitis. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2008, vol.61, n.3, pp.442-444. ISSN 0004-0614.
Objective: To report a brucellar orchie-pididymitis case and to review the diagnosis and treatment of this pathology. Method: We present the case of a 62 year old man presenting with fever, testicular pain and constitutional syndrome. The diagnosis was made after ultrasound, blood cultures and anamnesis. Results: The treatment was Doxiciclin six weeks and teicoplanin, the second one was replaced with ciprofloxacin. Conclusion: It is important to make a correct anamnesis to the patient with orchiepididymitis to identify any risk factor for brucellosis. The diagnosis is confirmed with blood cultures. The oral antibiotics are enough to cure patients.
