Tubular ectasia of the rete testis associated with azoospermia: a case report
MetadataShow full item record
Tubular ectasia of the rete testis (TERT) is a rare benign condition of the testis due to dilatation of the tubules of the rete testis. It must be differentiated from neoplastic disease of the testis clinically by patient's age, mode of presentation, tumour marker status and characteristic Ultrasound and Colour Doppler findings.1 Awareness and diagnosis of TERT should prevent unnecessary surgical intervention such as orchidectomy or biopsy. We report a case of severe bilateral tubular ectasia of the rete testis associated with azoospermia and review the relevant literature. This association has not been reported before in the literature to the best of our knowledge.
