Abstract

OBJECTIVE. Differentiation of scrotal lesions is often dictated by whether they are intraor extratesticular. However, these regions are not entirely isolated, and disease processes can span both spaces. We review a variety of lesions that can involve both regions, describe the relevant anatomy, and illustrate their imaging appearances. CONCLUSION. Identifcation of involvement of both intra-and extratesticular regions by a single process can narrow the differential considerations and help arrive at the correct diagnosis.
