Tuberculosis of the testis-epididymis


A 1938 surgical specimen from a man aged 24. No general history available. The specimen shows typical tuberculous infection of the epididymis with involvement of the globus minor and the body, but with little disease of the globus major. There is also fairly severe tuberculosis of the testis a result of spread from the epididymis.
