Abstract

Acute epididymo-orchitis is not a rare disease in children. We report a 10-year-old boy who presented to our hospital with a 14-day oral cefazoline treatment for left epididymo-orchitis without any voiding problem, uncontrollably resulting in abscess formation because of pseudomonal infection. We highlight the importance of alertness and sonographic examination to a community-acquired pseudomonal infection in prepubertal boys with a first episode of acute epididymitis.
