On the left-hand side, the hydrocele sac has been opened, and the testis incised; the testis is,
perhaps, a little small. The lining of the hydrocele cavity is smooth. On the right-hand side, the
hydrocele sac has not been opened, and it can be shown by manoeuvring the specimen that the sac
transmits light, except at the lower left-hand corner where, presumably, the testis lies.
This was an incidental finding at autopsy in an elderly man with diabetes, obstructive
airways disease and coronary artery disease, who died of bronchopneumonia.
