Testicle and epididymis are swollen and discolored black.
Additional findings: Hemorrhagic necrosis of testicle and epididymis
Clinically: 2 year old boy, testicular torsion
Commentary: Torsion of the spermatic cord and rotation of the testicle around its lengthwise axis with consecutive cutoff of the blood flow to the testicle with resulting hemorrhagic infarction and necrosis of the testicle.The reason is the abnormal mobility of the testicle inside the tissue layers around it and its suspension. Often not fully descended testicles or testicles with late descensus are affected. Testicular torsion can happen at any age. It most often occurs in the first year of life or during puberty.Source: ©PathoPic
