    Abstract

    Tuberculous epididymitis is uncommonly encountered and is a very rare complication of Bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) intravesical therapy for the treatment of bladder urothelial cancer. With the increased use of BCG, it is conceivable that practicing urologists will see more patients presenting with this infection. Herein, we describe an unusual presentation of tuberculous epididymitis treated successfully in a conservative fashion with anti-tuberculotic medications and describe current diagnostic, as well as medical and surgical management strategies.
