During the outpatient department visits 3 and 6 months later, abdominal contrast CT was performed, which revealed that the perirenal hematoma and the hematocele
had shrunk, and there were signs of liquification.
Under sonography, an extrauterine gestational sac might look like a complex mass very similar to other, more common pelvic masses, such as hemorrhagic corpus luteum cysts, pelvic hematoceles
, tubo-ovarian abscesses or remains from pelvic inflammatory disease.
caused by acute trauma to the scrotal contents is usually associated with signs of pain.

is the most common finding following trauma, which initially appears echogenic becoming hypoechoic as it evolves.
Hydrocele and more complex fluid collections are easily identified such as epididymal cyst, hematocele
In our patient, the etiology of the hematocele
was unknown, in the absence of predisposing conditions or previous trauma.
CONCLUSION: Tumors occurring in the para-testicular region may be clinically indistinguishable from testicular tumors, and other scrotal swellings like organized hematocele
, thus resulting in initial misdiagnosis.
Intraoperatively, there were signs of significant periorchitis with adhesions of the testicle to the scrotal wall and a hematocele
. A biopsy was sent for frozen section, which confirmed fibrosis and chronic inflammation with no malignancy identified.
The differential diagnosis includes pyocele, hematocele
, epididymal cyst, epididymal cystic lymphangioma, varicocele, and rhabdomyosarcoma.
Other findings include irregular, poorly defined borders, scrotal wall thickening, and hematocele
Conditions like old clotted hematoceles
may simulate malignancy clinically and testicular malignancy itself may present as a secondary hydrocele.
