In this case report, we aimed to present an 18-year-old male patient who had ruptured testicle after severe testicular trauma that developed due to a motorcycle accident. An eighteen-year-old male patient was brought to the emergency service after a motorcycle accident. There were open fractures in the left arm and left leg. The scrotum was ruptured, both testicles were outside, and the right testicle was ruptured. The patient was underwent emergency surgery for intraabdominal hemorrhage and liver laceration by general surgery. Also urology joined the operation. Urology carried out right orchiectomy and left testicular fixation on the patient. Although rupture of testicles is a rare condition, it may accompany the diagnosis in patients with multiple traumas. Early urology consultation should be sought to be able to save testicles and minimize complications.
