, ROME, Mar 31 – A court has ordered a hospital in northern Italy to pay 180,000 euros (242,000 dollars) to a man after surgeons removed a healthy testicle in error, a press report said Wednesday.

The plaintiff, who was 27 at the time of the operation in 2004, had a tumour in the left testicle but the healthy one was removed, the Arena di Verona newspaper reported.

The surgeons quickly realised their mistake and removed the left testicle as well, the report said.
