JIMENEZ YANEZ, Rosa et al. Chronic calcified hematocele: Case report. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2007, vol.60, n.3, pp.303-306. ISSN 0004-0614.

Objective: Chronic hematoceles are rare scrotal masses. Most of them include trauma, torsion, tumor, and surgery as possible causes. We describe the case of an old diabetic patient, who is attended for presenting a marked increase in size of the right hemiescrotum and pain. Methods: We described computed tomography and sonographic findings. Results/Conclusions: Frequently, a varicocele is an associated finding. Presumibly, minor trauma results in rupture of dilated vessels. In sonographic exploration, they have a more complex heterogeneous appearance with echogenic debris and septations. Most hematoceles spontaneously resolve with conservative therapy.

Keywords : Scrotal mass; Chronic hematocele; Ultrasound.
