ABSTRACT
Fibrous pseudotumors are rare, benign fibroproliferative tumor-like lesions in the scrotum, and they most commonly arise from the tunica vaginalis testis (75%). There have been few reported cases of the fibrous pseudotumor of the tunica vaginalis testis with the radiologic findings, so we report on this rare case with focusing on the ultrasonographic findings. A 20-year-old man was admitted with a palpable mass in the right scrotum. On ultrasonography, multiple nodules were seen together with posterior shadowing along the inner surface of the scrotal wall. Fibrous pseudotumor arising from the tunica vaginalis testis was pathologically confirmed after surgical excision.
