Sarcoidosis presenting as an epididymal mass.
Sarcoidosis is a multisystem inflammatory disease that characteristically involves the lungs and lymph nodes. Involvement of the genitourinary system is rare. We report the case of a 39-year-old African American man who presented with an asymptomatic right-sided epididymal mass and underwent partial epididymectomy. Pathologic analysis revealed numerous noncaseating granulomas. Results from computed tomography imaging of the chest and lung biopsy were consistent with sarcoidosis.
