Cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection, though usually systemic, has been known to cause localised involvement of organs like lung, liver, testis and gastrointestinal tract. We report a case of cytomegaloviral infection involving the epididymis without systemic manifestations in an young male one month after renal transplantation. The diagnosis was made on histopathologic examination of the epididymo-orchidectomy specimen. Clinical improvement occurred after the emergency epididymo-orchidectomy. To the best of our knowledge, only three cases of CMV epididymitis have been described in the world literature--two in transplant patients and one in an AIDS patient.
