Translated title of the contribution: Swollen scrotum in the context of the emergency department

Abstract

The recent emergence of a painful, swollen scrotum calls for an answer to the question: 'Is there any indication for surgery?'. A detailed interview and thorough examination make it possible to reach a diagnosis and prescribe the treatment required. If there is any doubt, ultrasound of the testis provides further information which is often very useful. Doppler ultrasound is not effective. If any doubt persists, surgical exploration is required in order to rule out the possibility of testicular necrosis.
