SANCHEZ-MARTIN, F.M. et al. Vegetable foreign body in the testis. Actas Urol Esp [online]. 2004, vol.28, n.1, pp.65-69. ISSN 0210-4806.

A vegetable foreign body located inside the testicular parenchyma is presented. It’s about an unexpected pathological finding in an orchidectomy sample, performed on account of testicular atrophy secondary to very advanced funicular twist. The finding of a vegetal material inside the testis is outstanding. In our knowledge we don’t know about another similar case. Pathologic aspects, including granulomatous reaction, regarding arguments of testicular atrophy and the foreign body irruption mechanism are discussed. The handling of the scrotum by paramedical people could justify his presence.

Keywords : Foreign body; Testicle; Testicular atrophy; Paramedicine.
