Development of swelling and pain without trauma in a scrotal hematoma is very rare. We report on a case of scrotal hematoma with active bleeding caused by sparganosis. A 75-year-old male patient who presented with left scrotal swelling and moderate pain that started one day ago was admitted to the emergency department. On the computed tomography (CT) scan, a hematoma of greater than 10 cm was observed in the left scrotum and contrast extravasation was observed on the post-enhanced CT scan. Therefore, we concluded massive left scrotal hematoma with active bleeding. The patient underwent immediate surgery, and approximately 200 cc of hematoma was evacuated, and a movable whitish colored sparganum was found and removed. In cases involving development of scrotal hematoma without trauma, confirmed by surgery, sparganosis should be suspected, and should be removed.
Key words: Scrotum, Sparganosis, Sparganum
