A retrospective study was undertaken of 25 children with epididymitis seen at our pediatric hospital during the last 5 years. The symptoms and signs in these patients were evaluated, as well as the results of urinalysis, urine culture, excretory urogram, scrotal scan, exploration and white blood count. The presence of underlying urological problems was particularly sought for and found to be rare prior to epididymitis. The treatment and results are reviewed.
