Abstract

Malakoplakia (MLP) is a rare chronic granulomatous condition that preferentially involves the urinary tract particularly the urinary bladder.Involvement of extra-vesical sites like testis, epididymis, kidneys, ureters,urinary pelvis, colon, lung, bone, retroperitoneum is now being increasingly recognised(Kang,Kim,Lee,and Kim, 2013) (McClure,1980).Epidydimalmalakoplakia most often appears as an extension from an adjacent involved testis. We present a case of isolated epidydimalmalakoplakia, without concurrent testicular involvement in a patient with prostatic carcinoma which was clinically mistaken for testicular metastases.To the best of our knowledge, isolated epididymalmalakoplakia is extremely rare.(Kang et al, 2013).
