Abstract

Underlying congenital genito-urinary tract anomalies are the most common cause of recurrent epididymo-orchitis in prepubertal boys. An 8-year-old boy was admitted with recurrent pulmonary and skin infections, was diagnosed as Kostmann syndrome and developed epididymo-orchitis. This appears to be the first case of Kostmann syndrome associated with epididymo-orchitis.
