Scrotal Hemangioma


US – Fusiform hypoechoic thickening of the scrotal skin which is markedly hyperemic on Doppler imaging.


Scrotal hemangiomas are extremely rare, comprising less than 1% of all hemangiomas. They usually manifest in infants, and occasionally in later childhood or adolescence. Most patients are asymptomatic, although on rare occasions a patient will present with dull, aching pain, heaviness, bleeding, and ulceration. These symptoms may lead to misdiagnosis of the lesion as a varicocele or inguinal hernia. Microscopic analysis reveals numerous vascular spaces that vary in size and are lined with benign epithelial cells. A lobular pattern of vessels may also be seen. The lesions may be characterized as capillary, cavernous, or arteriovenous.
