Resumen

KELLER, Guillermo A.  y  SESSA, Cecilia. Abdomina distention and edema due to spermatic cord cyst. Medicina (B. Aires) [online]. 2006, vol.66, n.2, pp. 150-152. ISSN 1669-9106.

Abdominal distention is a frequent symptom, being often the initial presentation of systemic diseases or gastrointestinal disorders. Other causes are uncommon. Spermatic cord cysts are infrequent, abdominal location is even rarer, and the size of the cysts is usually not enough to produce abdominal distention. In our case a man with bilateral cryptorchidism was admitted with abdominal distention and edema of the lower extremities initially interpreted as ascitic-edematous syndrome. Ultrasonography interpreted abdominal distention as septate ascites, computed tomography as a giant cyst. Exploratory surgery showed a giant spermatic cord cyst in the left spermatic cord.

Palabras llave : cryptorchidism; ascites; spermatyc cord; cyst.
