We report here 5 bacteriologically proven cases of Brucellar epididymoorchitis. Four cases presented with unilateral epididymoorchitis and with bilateral presentation in one case. Blood culture grew Brucella melitensis in all 5 cases. B.melitensis was isolated in testicular aspirate of 4 patients. Brucella agglutinins were demonstrated in testicular aspirate of 4 patients and semen of 2 patients. To our knowledge this is the first report of bacteriologically proven cases of brucellar epididymoorchitis in the world literature.
