HIDALGO, Jorge et al. Segmental testicular infarction vs testicular tumour: the usefulness of the excisional frozen biopsy. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2008, vol.61, n.1, pp.92-93. ISSN 0004-0614.

Objective: To report a case of a Segmental testicular infarction (STI) simulating a testicular tumour and to discuss the importance of the excisional frozen biopsy. Methods: We present the case of a patient with STI mimicking a testicular tumour. Results: The patient was treated with partial orchiectomy after excisional frozen biopsy. Conclusions: The excisional frozen biopsy in testicular masses is a diagnostic maneuver to be considered in order to perform a testis-sparing surgery.

Keywords : Segmental testicular infarction; Excisional; Biopsy; Testicular tumour.
