ABSTRACT

Tuberculosis is a major cause of morbidity and a persisting public health problem in the developing countries. Testicular tuberculosis particularly in isolated form is extremely rare. We report an unique case of testicular tuberculosis in a 20-year old male patient who presented in a painless right testicular swelling and whose clinical, radiological and biochemi­cal parameters indicated a germ cell tumor. However, the histopathology revealed a tubercular lesion underlining the necessity of an element of suspicion for tuberculosis even in testicular swellings particularly in the developing countries.
