CANOVAS IVORRA, José Antonio et al. Brucellar orchitis: Case report and bibliographic review. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2007, vol.60, n.7, pp.792-795. ISSN 0004-0614.

Objective: We report one case of unilateral epididymo-orchitis secondary to Brucella and perform a bibliographic review. Methods: We report the case of a 51-year-old male with fever, predominantly in the evening hours, over one month associated with a subacute inflammatory process on the right testicle and osteoarticular pain on the left ribs. Results: Treatment was performed with rifampicin 600 mg/day for 45 days and doxicilin 100 mg/12 hours for 45 days. Conclusions: The brucellar etiology should be taken into consideration in front of an epididymo- orchitis with torpid outcome, mainly in areas of endemic Brucella and patients that have had contact with cattle or non controlled milk derivatives. We emphasize that contact could have been several months before the appearance of clinical epididymoorchitis.
