Ultrasound should be reserved for men with scrotal pain who cannot receive an accurate diagnosis by history, physical examination, and objective laboratory findings or if torsion of the spermatic cord is suspected.
Men who have acute epididymitis typically have unilateral testicular pain and tenderness, hydrocele, and palpable swelling of the epididymis. However, because partial spermatic cord torsion can mimic epididymitis on scrotal ultrasound, when torsion is not epididimitos out by ultrasound, differentiation between spermatic cord torsion and epididymitis must be made on the basis of clinical evaluation.

The risk for penicillin cross-reactivity is highest with first-generation cephalosporins, but is negligible between most second-generation cefoxitin and all third-generation ceftriaxone cephalosporins see Management of Persons with a History of Penicillin Allergy.
Arrangements should be made to link female partners to care.
Treatment To prevent complications and transmission of sexually transmitted infections, presumptive therapy is indicated at the time of the visit before all laboratory test results are available. All suspected cases of acute epididymitis should be evaluated for objective evidence of inflammation by one of the epididimitiis point-of-care tests.

Chronic infectious epididymitis is most frequently seen in conditions associated with a granulomatous reaction; Mycobacterium tuberculosis TB is the most common granulomatous disease affecting the epididymis and should be suspected, especially in men with a known history of or recent exposure to TB.
Fungi and mycobacteria also are more likely to cause acute epididymitis in men with HIV orquitid than in those who are immunocompetent. Signs and symptoms of epididymitis that do not subside within 3 days require re-evaluation of the diagnosis and therapy. Although ultrasound can demonstrate epididymal hyperemia and swelling associated with epididymitis, it provides minimal utility for men with a clinical presentation consistent with epididymitis, because a negative ultrasound does not alter orquitos management.
Other etiologic agents have been implicated in acute epididymitis in men with HIV infection, including CMV, salmonella, toxoplasmosis, Ureaplasma urealyticumCorynebacterium sp.
