Abstract
A 16-year-old thoroughbred stallion developed sudden swelling of the left t esticle. The stallion had previously been regarded as a unilateral cryptorc hid. Ultrasound examination of the left testicle revealed a diffusely heter ogeneous parenchyma. The testicle was diffusely hypoechoic with ill defined regions of hyperechogenicity giving the appearance of hypoechoic nodules t hroughout the testicular parenchyma. No normal testicular tissue was identi fiable. An echogenic band, representing a pseudocapsule could be seen surro unding the testicle. Histopathologic diagnosis a seminoma.
