Mild orchitis in 6 year old child:

In a child, the first symptom that something is wrong in the scrotum, is pain. Ultrasound and color Doppler imaging may often not find the typical "testis on fire" sign of acute orchitis. This child has left orchitis, with only mild inflammation and hyperemia of the left testis. However, note the presence of a small hydrocele on the left side further supporting the diagnosis of left orchitis.
