Sparganosis of the testis is extremely rare and there have been no prior reports of this disorder in Korea. We describe the sonographic findings of a 60-year-old man who presented with multiple palpable nodules in the left scrotum and inguinal area, which he had experienced for the past 1 year, and which was confirmed to be sparganosis. Sonography showed multiple, variable sized, round or tubular shaped, hypoechoic lesions with partial posterior acoustic enhancement in the left inguinal area and multiple echogenic nodules with peripheral low echoic rim in the left testis. These nodules were linearly arranged and interconnected, in the form of a serpentine tubular lesion. Surgery and pathologic examination confirmed the presence of live sparganum surrounded by a chronic granulo-matous inflammation.
