Abstract


Objective: To explore the clinicopathological characteristics of solitary fibrous pseudotumor of the testicular tunica. Method: The clinical and pathological data of a case with solitary fibrous pseudotumor of the testicular tunica was retrospectively analyzed and the literature was reviewed. Results: Surgical exposure by trans-scrotal incision revealed a solid, well-delineated nodule at the testicular tunica distinct from the testis and the epididymis. Local excision for the tumor and partial testicular tunica was accomplished. After a follow-up of 6 months, no relapse occurred. Conclusion: Solitary fibrous pseudotumor of the testicular tunica is a rare benign neoplasm. this benign lesion should be distinguished from tumors and lesions of the testis and lesions of the paratesticular region and should not be confused with malignant neoplasm.

Key Words: Solitary Testicular tunica; Fibrous pseudotumor
