Asymptomatic Unilateral Giant Multilocular Epididymal Cyst in a Middle-Aged Patient

Dr. Nirdesh Rangapariya | Dr. Jignesh Dave [7] | Dr.Vidit Jethwa

Abstract: Unilateral multilocular huge epididymal cysts are a rare entity with few reports in the literature. Epididymal cysts are mostly found in middle-aged men with or without symptoms. We present the case of a 45-year-old man with asymptomatic Unilateral scrotal swelling, which was clinically diagnosed as a right epididymal cyst with left minimal hydrocele. However, an ultrasound of the scrotum revealed unilateral epididymal cysts with normal testes. Intraoperatively, it demonstrated unilateral huge epididymal cysts for which the patient underwent excision of unilateral epididymal cysts. Postoperatively, the patient is doing well on follow-up. Thus, it is concluded that when the epididymal cyst is larger than 10 mm or 1 cm and does not involute with time, surgery is indicated. In comparison, epididymal cysts smaller than 10 mm or 1 cm are managed conservatively.
