RODRIGUEZ VILLALBA, R.; SCARFINI, M.; RUIZ CASTANE, E.  and  POMEROL MONSENY, J.M.. Testicular microlithiasis: does exist any relationship with malignant tumour?. Actas Urol Esp [online]. 2004, vol.28, n.1, pp.38-39. ISSN 0210-4806.

The aim of this revision is to assess the relationship between testicular microlithiasis and malignant tumours. We reviewed 98 charts of patients with pathological diagnosis of testicular malignant tumour. Diagnosis of testicular tumour was made by ultrasound, and 6.02% (6 pts.) presented testicular lithiasis, and this finding makes us conclude that this is not a characteristic feature of this entity. We also reviewed bibliography related to this theme, and conclude that the management of microlithiasis remains being controversial.

Keywords : Testicular microlithiasis; Testicular neoplasms; Testicular ultrasound.
