What is the significance of calcification of the vas deferens?

Calcification of the vas deferens usually indicates the presence of diabetes mellitus and tends to be bilateral, symmetric, and in the walls of the vasa deferentia.

Chronic inflammation or prior infection may also lead to dystrophic calcification in the vas deferens; in these situations, the calcification is more often unilateral, segmental, and intraluminal in location.
