Abstract

Testicular malacoplakia is an extremely rare condition; only 37 cases have been reported in the world literature. We hereby report a case of testicular malacoplakia.
In over half of the cases of testicular malacoplakia, a preceding bacterial infection of a gramnegative rod has been known to occur, most commonly Escherichia coli from urine or a suppurative lesion. This evidence may well be significant in explaining a possible initiative or contributing cause of malacoplakia.
Orchiectomy is thought necessary to distinguish testicular malacoplakia from other scrotal conditions such as testicular cancer and granulomatous orchitis.
