OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study is to investigate the role of the inguinal hernia over the development of varicocele, in cases with accompanying inguinal hernia. METHODS: The continuous variables were calculated from mean and standard deviation, and intermittent variables were calculated over percentage and frequency. Normality testing was performed on continuous variables using the Kolmogorov-Smirnov test. Univariate analyses were performed using the unpaired Mann-Whitney U test and Chi-squared test was used for proportions. Kendall's tou-b correlation coefficient was used for correlition coefficient. Logistic regression modeling were used to identify the impact of inguinal hernias on selected cases. The data were analyzed with SPSS (TM) for Windows 22 (SPSS,Chicago, IL). RESULTS: Twelve cases (23.1\%) in the inguinal hernia group also had varicocele, which was relatively high, whereas 12 cases with inguinal hernia in the varicocele group corresponded to only were 4.02\% (12/52 (23.1\%) vs 12/298 (4.02\%)). On the other hand, as a result of the binary logistic regression, we found statistically significant difference in the probability of being diagnosed varicocele among the patients with inguinal hernia as 1.94 times. CONCLUSIONS: We think that in addition to the direct compression of some of the inguinal hernias on testicular veins, the potential for a combination of common enzymatic and biochemical disorders in some of the cases involving these two disorders may be play role.
