Identify this X- ray?


ANSWER

The Correct Answer is CALCIFIED VAS DEFERENS in the left side

Diabetes and TB are the two common causes of calcification of the vas deferens. Diabetes tends to cause bilateral, symmetrical, non-obstructing calcifications in the muscle part of the vas, while TB tends to cause unilateral, irregular calcifications.

Other causes include infections like gonorrhea and syphilis as well as chronic urinary tract infections.
