Hydrocele was found in 34 out of 850 patients seen between November 1976 and November 1977. Intrascrotal calcification was present in 10 of the 34 patients subjected to hydrocelectomy. The percentage incidence of urogenital calculosis was remarkably high in this material. The pathogenesis of intrascrotal calculus formation seems to be connected with the early phase of nucleation.
