BUSTO MARTIN, Luis A. et al. Giant cystic degeneration of the rete testis. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2009, vol.62, n.7, pp.592-595. ISSN 0004-0614.

Objectives: We present a case of giant cyst of the rete-testis Methods/Results: 85 year-old patient on follow-up for prostate cancer with maximum androgen blockade (MAB) treatment consults for a left hemiscrotum increase in size over a 2-month period. We performed bilateral orchiectomy confirming the histopathological diagnosis of cystic dilatation of the rete-testis sized 11x11x9cm. Conclusions: This case of cystic degeneration of the rete-testis, with a size out of common (11x11x9cm versus medium size in the literature: 3x3x3cm), could be related with an androgen-estrogen misbalance caused by a MAB in a prostate cancer context.

Keywords : Cyst of the rete-testis; Degeneration of the rete-testis; Giant testicle cyst.
