Testicular microlithiasis in a 2-year-old boy with pseudoxanthoma elasticum
TNO Kwaliteit van Leven
Pseudoxantoma elasticum (PXE) is a rare chromosomal disorder that results in mineralization of elastic fibers, especially in the skin, eye, and cardiovascular system. Recently, PXE has been associated with testicular microlithiasis (TM),1 which itself might be associated with testicular malignancy.2 Here we report on a 9-year-old boy with PXE who already had TM at 2 years. To our knowledge, this is the youngest patient with PXE in whom TM is documented. © 2008 by the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine.
