Abstract

Adenomatoid tumors were first described in the 1940s by Golden and Ash. They are rare benign tumors that primarily occur in the paratesticular tissues of male subjects and in the fallopian tubes of female subjects. The histogenesis of adenomatoid tumors is controversial. It has been suggested that they are derived from vascular endothelium, mesonephros, and mullerian epithelium, although most recent reports have favored a mesothelial origin. These benign tumors are generally found in the epididymis, the testicular tunicas, and occasionally the spermatic cord in the male subject. An adenomatoid tumor occurring in the testicular parenchyma without being locally invasive from the tunica albuginea is very rare, and only two cases have been reported in the English literature. We describe the ultrasonographic findings of an adenomatoid tumor arising from the testicular parenchyma that is not associated with the lesion in the tunica albuginea or the epididymis.
