The purpose of our study is to evaluate different non traumatic scrotal pathologies in complain of pain and swelling in scrotum and to describe role of USG as a primary investigation of choice for different scrotal pathologies. METHOD: This paper reviews the incidence of different scrotal pathologies in total 46 patients presenting with complain of pain/swelling or both in scrotum for USG in Radiology Department of S.S.G. Hospital & Medical College Baroda in a period of 18 weeks study. RESULTS: Largest number of patients in this study, fall in the age group of 21-40 years and patients with exclusive testicular pathologies were 10 in number (i.e 21.7%) of all cases, out of which most common pathology was orchitis, while extra testicular scrotal pathologies were observed in 21 cases (i.e.45%) and majority of them were hydrocele. The most common cause of pain and swelling in scrotum was due to the epididymo-orchitis.
