ABSTRACT


Traumatic ectopic dislocation of testis is a rare occurrence and usually occurs following a motorcycle collision, in what is referred to as "fuel tank injury". Early identification and subsequent surgical management is of utmost importance to maintain normal spermatogenesis in the dislocated testis. In appropriate clinical setting, scrotal ultrasound examination with gray-scale and color flow Doppler imaging is the method of choice for diagnosis. Computed tomography of the abdomen is a useful adjunct procedure. We report a case of traumatic testicular dislocation with partial testicular torsion following a motorcycle collision, diagnosed with imaging, and subsequently confirmed on surgery.
