Visit to high altitude with its hypoxic hypobaric environment poses various physiological and biochemical challenges to a human body. If the body is not able to cope up to this changed environment, it leads to various maladies of high altitude like high altitude cerebral oedema, high altitude pulmonary oedema and spontaneous vascular thrombosis. There are reports of high altitude-induced deep venous thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, mesenteric ischemia etc. We report a unique case of high altitude-induced testicular infarct in a previously healthy individual after a brief stay at the high-altitude region Ladakh...
