E Bekar, T Yalta, H Yarıcı, A Dogdas, Y Tuncer

Abstract


Splenogonadal fusion is a rare congenital anomaly that has been encountered in all age groups. It is defined as an abnormal connection between spleen and gonad or mesonephros derivatives. We report a case of splenogonadal fusion which was diagnosed incidentally in a 38-year-old man with a history of infertility. This rare entity should be considered in the differential diagnosis of testicular masses.

Key Words: Splenogonadal fusion, testicular mass.
