Ultrasound imaging of scrotal wall thickening and its significance in the diagnosis of Fournier's gangrene in older men

Yair Safriel, Harris L. Cohen, Jean Torrisi

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Scrotal sonograms of a series of older patients with scrotal wall thickening were analyzed retrospectively for associated sonographic, radiographic, and clinical features. Scrotal thickening in debilitated, older men can be a sign of more grave pathology and may be associated with a significant morbidity.
