Urology, 06/08/2012Mally AD et al.
An 8–year–old male with a history of VACTERL association was found to have a paratesticular mass. The patient was treated successfully with a radical orchiectomy and found to have ureteral ectopia inserting into the ipsilateral epididymis, resulting in this paratesticular mass caused by inflammation of the epididymis. This is the only reported case in the English literature of an ectopic ureter inserting into the epididymis and presenting as a paratesticular tumor.
