|Abstract:||Traumatic rupture of the testicle is rare because of the protection afforded by surrounding structures. Many clinicians now speculate that this entity is underreported due to misdiagnosis. However, the condition should not be overlooked because of the importance of early treatment for the preservation of testicular function. A more aggressive approach to scrotal hematoma has been advocated. A case of traumatic rupture of testicle in a 21-year-old patient is reported. The testicle was surgically explored 6 days after trauma to the scrotum. The tunica albuginea was repaired and the testicle was preserved. Discussion is made especially on the injury to scrotum.|
