The diagnosis was incidental in asymptomatic patients. Neoplastic markers were negative in all pts.
Table 1 shows global data of the clinical and pathologic characteristics of the whole patient population.
Pre-operative sonographic patterns for the individual patients are presented in Table 2.
Sonographic appearance of testicular lesions was heterogeneous with a prevalence of hypoecoic pattern. Color Doppler signals of the STMs resulted absent except three cases.
CEUS showed lesional absence of contrast enhancement in 2 lesions (Fig. 1), progressive and weak contrast enhancement in 4 cases (Fig. 2), early hyperenhancement followed by iso-enhancement in 5 cases (Fig. 3, 4) and marked hyperenhancement followed by wash out in 5 pts (fig. 5, 6). At final pathologic analysis the lesions above corresponded respectively to: epidermoid cyst, inflammation, seminoma, leydigioma. 11 pts underwent TSS while all 5 cases of seminoma had radical orchiectomy.
At 12 months US follow-up all patients underwent TSS were free of disease.
