Genitourinary involvement with sarcoidosis is very rare. The objective of this report was to present a case of a patient with testicular swelling. The patient was an infertile 42-year-old man with bilateral testicular swelling. Semen analysis in the past 10 years revealed no abnormality; however, gradually he became azoospermic in 3 years. A diagnosis of sarcoidosis made on the basis of hilar and mediastinal lymphadenopathy in chest CT scan was confirmed through testicular and epididymal biopsy. Testicular masses vanished after administering steroids, and azoospermia recovered. To conclude, although genitourinary sarcoidosis is rare, it must be kept in mind in patients with confirmed sarcoidosis.
