This article is from Journal of Medical Case Reports, volume 8.AbstractIntroduction: Hydrocele development is the most common complication after varicocele repair. The beginning of this kind of hydrocele is variable. The shortest reported onset is one week. In the present report we describe an unusual immediate onset of hydrocele formation following varicocele repair. This represents the first report of a harsh hydrocele onset in the literature. Case presentation: A 29-year-old Caucasian male noticed the development of a big hydrocele just a few hours after inguinal varicocelectomy. The hydrocele remained stable in size throughout 12 years until a hydrocelectomy was done. Conclusion: Mass ligation and division of the spermatic cord structures during varicocele surgery should be avoided. Instead, lymphatic sparing is highly recommended. Differentiation between testicular edema and hydrocele should be confirmed as early as possible to assure the patient properly. This case study highlights the importance of our knowledge about the surgical anatomy of the spermatic cord structures. It definitely advances our understanding of a post-varicocelectomy hydrocele etiology and development. It is an original case report of interest to andrologists, urologists and general surgeons.
