Abstract

Acute scrotal pain is a clinical entity that in a high percentage of cases is associated with an urgent need for medical intervention such as testicular torsion. Testicular ultrasound helps diagnosis and incidental findings, as the testicular microlithiasis, are found due to the increased use of ultrasound in recent decades. It is a benign condition, but it has been found associated with testicular tumors, so periodic clinical and ultrasound monitoring is recommended.
