    Epididymitis is described in a man aged 33 who had been treated with the antiarrhythmic agent, amiodarone. No signs of bacterial infection or anatomical abnormalities were found. Amiodarone as the cause of non-infectious epididymitis has been reported. This additional case stresses the importance of considering an adverse effect of amiodarone treatment as a cause when making a differential diagnosis of epididymitis.
