Abstract

Angiokeratoma of the scrotum is thought to be associated with varicocele. Our study population consisted of young soldiers and adult reservists. The young population was screened during routine medical examination for the existence of varicocele or angiomas on the scrotum, while the adult reservists, who according to their medical records had varicocele, were randomly questioned for the existence of any kind of spots or lesions on their scrota. We found no association between varicocele and angiokeratoma of the scrotum. Since the prevalence of varicocele is high, it is possible that in the reported cases the association of varicocele and angiokeratoma of the scrotum was coincidental.
