[Case of tuberculous epididymitis caused by intravesical BCG therapy].
Hinyokika Kiyo. 2008 Sep; 54(9):625-7.HK

Abstract

Intravesical Bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG) therapy is commonly used against superficial urothelial carcinoma, especially carcinoma in situ (CIS). We report a case of tuberculous epididymitis that occurred during a course of intravesical BCG therapy. A 76-year-old man had received intravesical BCG therapy for multiple superficial bladder cancer and CIS in prostatic urethra after transurethral resection of bladder tumor (TUR-Bt). He recognized hard nodules in the left scrotum after 4 times intravesical BCG therapy. Skin fistula in scrotum occurred 5 months later. We performed left orchiectomy with scrotum skin resection. Histological diagnosis was tuberculous epididymitis. Postoperatively, he was administered chemotherapy consisting of isoniazid, refampin and ethambutol.
