ABSTRACT
Introduction. We report a case of spontaneous rupture of a single testicular prosthesis in a patient who had undergone bilateral orchiectomy and silicone gel-filled prosthesis insertion. The consequences of this rare event are discussed. There is no management algorithm. Case Presentation. A 55-year-old man presented to our outpatient department with altered consistency in his right testicular prosthesis and a painful right hemiscrotum with no systemic symptoms thirty-three years after the implantation of the prosthesis. We removed this implant without replacement, in accordance with the patient's wishes. Conclusion. The long time between the implantation and the spontaneous rupture is remarkable and was never before described. The removal of the prosthesis was straightforward and it would have been possible to implant a new prosthesis after taking into account the condition of the skin.

Mentions: A 55-year-old man presented to our outpatient department with a three-month history of increased right hemiscrotum volume. He reported discomfort when sitting. There was no history of trauma and there were no systemic symptoms. Examination revealed a swollen and painful right hemiscrotum with a loss of consistency of the right testicular prosthesis. The scrotum content appeared to be stuck to the skin, and the overlying skin was rough with asperities (Figure 1). No regional adenopathy was detected.
