"Call for scientific cooperation" by Prof. Lorenzo Derchi:

Dear colleagues,
while digging into my archives, I have found 4 cases of metastases to the scrotum: three at the spermatic cord (from renal, colon and liver tumours) and one located below the testis (from renal cancer). I have US and CT images and pathologic proof of the disease (with microscopic images in one of them).
These are rare conditions which are described in the literature only as case report or very small series.
It could be interesting to collect a numer of cases to describe patients' history and radiological findings and prepare, together, a meaningful paper.
I think also metastatic involvent of the testis could be included in the series.

If you have cases and are willing to cooperate, please write me to: derchi(at)

Best regards,
Lorenzo Derchi
