Summary— Testicular involvement in dracunculosis is extremely rare, although intrascrotal abscesses do occur in this infestation. Two cases of testicular abscess are reported. In both cases the guinea worm had penetrated the tunica albuginea to be lodged in the testicular as well as the paratesticular tissue. Dracunculosis should be included in the differential diagnosis of testicular swellings in areas where it is endemic.
