The second most common form of extra pulmonary Tuberculosis (TB) is urogenital tuberculosis which accounts for 2 to 20 percent of individuals with pulmonary tuberculosis and 25 to 62 percent of haematogenous seeding of the urogenital tract. Tuberculosis can affect the entire male genital tract. Testicular tuberculosis occurs in approximately 3 % of patients and unilateral testicular TB is all the more uncommon and is rarely reported in the literature. We report a case of a healthy 55 year old male presenting with left scrotal mass for 1 month, subsequently proved out to be unilateral testicular TB.
