Malakoplakia of Testis: A Case Report
AbstractMalakoplakia is an uncommon chronic inflammatory disease usually affecting the urogenital tract and often associated with the infection due to coliform bacteria (E. coli). It is characterised by the presence of VonHansemann cells and intracytoplasmic inclusion bodies called Michaelis-Gutmann Bodies. This condition is common in bladder (40%), Testes are affected in 12% cases. The lesion mainly occurs in middle aged men, appearing clinically as epididymo-orchitis or testicular enlargement with fibrous consistency and some soft areas. Orchidectomy is the only way to differentiate from epididymoorchitis or infected processes and testicular malignancy. This is a case report of an elderly patient with testicular malakoplakia
