Abstract:   (10074 Views)
Testicular microlithiasis (TM) is an uncommon condition with reported prevalence of 0.6% in patients referred for scrotal ultrasound. Testicular microlithiasis was first reported by Priebe and Garret in 1970 and defined as multiple tiny calcification throughout the testis. The condition appears as characterstic small nonshadowing hyperechoic stippling foci in testicular parenchyma. Several associations have been reported with testicular microlithiasis. Considrable accrued evidence points to an association between testicular microlithiasis, intra tubular germ cell neoplasia and testicular tumor. This topic is of considerable attention to researchers. We recommend annual ultrasonic follow up and patient education about self- examination and bio-humeral evaluation for ruling out concurrent tumors.
