Hydroceles

 

Infantile hydroceles are common.

   Caused by failure of the processus vaginalis to obliterate after testicular descent through the inguinal canal.

   Clinical signs are a soft swelling around the testis that transilluminates and above which the examiner can get (Fig. 23.16).

   Most resolve by the second year and those that do not should be treated surgically through a short groin incision.

Check for inguinal hernia.
