Abstract

Fibrous pseudotumors of the tunica vaginalis, epididymis, and spermatic cord are uncommon benign paratesticular masses. We report the case of a 27-year-old man who presented with grossly abnormal testicular examination. Scrotal Doppler ultrasound scan showed normal testicles bilaterally and solid, round, multiple 15-40 mm hypoechoic lesions adjacent to the right testis. Tumoral markers were within normal limits. Uncomplicated right radical orchiectomy was performed. After a follow-up of 12 months, no relapse occurred. We discuss about rare benign paratesticular masses identified as fibrous pseudotumors.
