I do not remember if I have seen bilateral orchitis in the recent past that I saw to-day.The enlargement is quite remarkable.May be it is due to the delay in arrival to the hospital.Orchitis is inflammation of testis commonly by bacteria in an adult but in tropical countries usually filarial. .In children it is usually of viral in origin.Here the testis enlarges and becomes painful accompanied by fever.Epididymis is also involved most of the times.It follows an urinary tract infection through backward infection.
Support of testis,analgesics to relieve the pain and antibiotics to control infection are required.Investigations like urine examination along with culture and sensitivity test and ultrasonography of testis and abdomen are important to support treatment.
