Swelling of the Scotum/Testis

External genitals in a 10.2-year-old boy. In addition to the swelling of the scrotum a redness of the scrotal skin and a loss of the fine scrotal folds is obvious. The cause of these findings is a progressed stage of torsion of the testis on the right side. Notice the beginning pubic hair. Torsions of the testis occur at any age but preferably at puberty and perinatally.
