Abstract

Unilateral testicular microlithiasis is uncommon but important because of its association with malignancy. A 16-year old male presented with abdominal mass and multiple lung nodules. Contrast enhanced computed tomography (CECT) of abdomen revealed a large right para-aortic mass with multiple para-aortic lymphadenopathy. Sonography confirmed undescended left testis and revealed multiple punctate, non-shadowing foci in the right testis that is characteristic of microlithiasis. Ultrasound guided biopsy of the abdominal mass revealed mixed germ cell tumour. The aim of this paper is to highlight the significance of testicular microlithiasis. We believe that the occurrence of testicular microlithiasis should raise the suspicion of associated testicular malignancy.
