Hepatitis B is a common, vaccine-preventable infection with high mortality and morbidity rates worldwide. Numerous extrahepatic syndromes have been described in patients with either acute or chronic viral hepatitis B.

We would like to present and discuss a 12-year-old male patient with epididymitis that might be relation exist with an underlying acute hepatitis B infection.
