Abstract

Genitourinary tuberculosis (GT) constitutes 8-15% of extrapulmonary form of tuberculosis (TB). Genitourinary tuberculosis has predilection to affect epididymis, seminal vesicles, prostate and testis. Testicular involvement however is rare seen in about 3% of patients with genital tuberculosis. We are reporting a case of unilateral tubercular testicular swelling.
