Abstract Share this page

Hyperbaric oxygen is considered an adjunctive treatment to medical and surgical care. We present a unique case in which a male patient with decompression illness affecting inner ear and spinal cord presented a worsened unilateral hydrocele synchronously with the neurological pathology. At the Diving and Hyperbaric Medicine Department, the patient was initially recompressed using a modified United States Navy Treatment Table 6A; on the following days he was treated for decompression illness using hyperbaric oxygen. Hyperbaric oxygen treatment has not been used for the treatment of hydrocele, but disappearance of the hydrocele occurred during the time he was treated with hyperbaric oxygen for decompression illness. He was discharged on Day 8, free of symptoms, having a normal neurological examination
