Testicular infarction is a common complication of spermatic cord torsion but substantially less common in epididymo-orchitis and even less so in epididymitis. We report a case of acute epididymitis that on Doppler sonography showed reversal of diastolic flow within the involved testis. A follow-up study 3 weeks later showed testicular infarction. Reversal of flow in the testis is an unusual finding. Very little has been reported on the subject in the literature.
