Reprint of: A Rare Diagnosis of Segmental Testicular Infarction on Colored Doppler Ultrasound
A 37 year-old male with no known past medical history presented to the emergency department for non-radiating, left, intermittent testicular pain that has persisted for many years. He described the pain as a heavy, achy sensation, rated 5/10 in severity. Three days prior to his visit, he noticed that with the onset of his testicular pain, his left testis had also become swollen. He had been taking Motrin 400 mg PO at home for his discomfort and applying ice, which helped reduce the swelling. The left testis swelled back up almost immediately when he removed the cold compress or stood up. He denied any trauma to his genitalia, known masses, erythema, fevers, chills, penile discharge, or urinary symptoms.
