Özet

Brucellosis is an endemic zoonotic disease that can cause symptoms in multiple organs. Brucellosis is a type of gram-negative coccobacilli. This disease is endemic in the Arabian Peninsula, Mediterranean region, India, and Central and South America. Brucellosis can be caused due to arthritis, orchitis, hepatitis, encephalomyelitis, and endocarditis. It is a multi-organ infectious disease that can cause genitourinary symptoms. Epididymo-orchitis can be seen in 5.7% of the affected patients. Testicular abscesses associated with brucellosis are very rare. The disease is diagnosed by the presence of orchitis symptoms such as testicular pain, swelling and redness, fever, sweating, serological tests and ultrasonographic findings. Medical treatment, abscess drainage, and orchiectomy can be performed to treat brucellosis. In our study, a rare case of multiple testis abscesses was presented.
