Abstract

The term varicocele describes a dilated, tortuous and elongated pampiniform plexus of veins, which is well known in relation to the spermatic cord. Recently varicocele has also been observed inside the testis, and this new entity is known as intra-testicular varicocele. We present a case of intra-testicular varicocele presenting as acute scrotum and discuss the management issues.
