We report a case of inflammation of the spermatic cord and testicle resulting from a perforated diverticulum of the sigmoid colon. Management included sigmoid resection with diversion, right orchiectomy and debridement of the right groin. To our knowledge this is the first reported case of retroperitoneal necrotizing fasciitis presenting initially as an acute scrotum.
