Abstract

Arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) of male genitalia are rare. In the literature there are reports of AVMs involving the scrotum,(1,2) penis,(3) spermatic cord,(4) testis, and epididymis(5) and interventional. treatment of scrotal AVMs.(6) In our literature search, we found no report about intratesticular AVMs. In this report we present the sonographic features of a small intratesticular AVM, which was incidentally found in a patient during scrotal examination for infertility evaluation. This rare entity should be considered in the differential diagnosis of intratesticular masses.
