A patient with acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) who presented with right testicular swelling is described. Sonography demonstrated diffuse enlargement and inhomogeneity of the testicle with central hypoechoic areas. Testicular abscesses were seen at surgery and Mycobacterium tuberculosis was cultured from the surgical specimen. Tuberculosis should be considered in the differential diagnosis of testicular enlargement or abscess formation in AIDS.
