Abstract

Introduction: The majority of chronic inflammatory diseases were due to tubercular etiology. The most noteworthy sonographic findings of tuberculous epididymitis were enlarged epididymis, marked heterogeneity of echo-texture of involved epididymis, obliteration of interface between testis and epididymis, hypo-echoic nodular lesions within the testis and occasionally micro-calcification. On color Doppler sonography, spotty or focal linear Doppler signals may be seen at the periphery of the epididymis.

Methods: 100 scrotal pathology cases have been considered for study wherein high-frequency real-time grey-scale ultra-sonography along with color doppler sonography study have been conducted. The study time frame was October 2018 to March 2020.

Results: Inflammatory scrotal malformation was detected on high frequency ultrasonography (HF US) and Doppler in 40 out of 100 case studies.

Conclusion: HF US enables and empowers to unmistakably exhibit the primary changes related with intense scrotal incendiary infections, and shading Doppler is profoundly touchy in investigating intense scrotal pathology.
