Acute scrotal conditions are common clinical concern in infants and children. The true cause is difficult to determine. There are several etiologic factors for this syndrome. These are torsion of the testis (TT), torsion of the testicular appendix (TTA), epididymoorchitis (EO) and strangulated inguinoscrotal hernia (SIH). It is generally admitted that EO is rare in children and is associated with structural anomalies of the urinary tract. The aim of this study is to review the various causes of pediatric acute scrotal conditions and to assess management of these patients under the light of relevant literature.
