The prevalence of tuberculosis in Denmark is low compared to many developing countries. It is most commonly found in socially marginalized communities. We present an unusual case of a man, who was referred to urological treatment as a computed tomography had showed a tumour with a suspicious process in the left scrotum and in relation to the left seminal vesicle. Histopathology of the testis showed granuloma formation. A Ziehl-Neelsen staining showed no acid-fast bacilli, but polymerase chain reaction revealed Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Antituberculous treatment was commenced.
