Abstract

We present 3 cases of diffuse infiltration of the testes and epididymides by malignant lymphoma and leukemia. Gray-scale and color Doppler sonograms showed diffuse hypoechoic enlargement and hypervascularity of the involved testes and epididymides. The authors emphasize that enlargement and hypervascularity of both the epididymis and testis can be caused by lymphomatous/leukemic involvement and is not always indicative of epididymo-orchitis.
