Epididymitis is an uncommon cause of scrotal swelling in infants and children. Occasionally, this condition may be a manifestation of a more serious systemic disorder or a genitourinary anomaly; however, in most instances the cause is unknown. When available, histopathologic specimens from children with this condition usually show only nonspecific acute and chronic inflammatory changes. Recently, we cared for a 2 1/2 -year-old child with sarcoidosis and bilateral scrotal swelling due to granulomatous epididymitis.
