TROVARELLI, Stefano et al. Extratesticular intraescrotal neurofibroma: case report. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2006, vol.59, n.9, pp.905-908. ISSN 0004-0614.
Objetives: We report a rare case of intrascrotal neurofibroma in an adult patient not affected by neurofibromatosis (NF1). Methods: Clinical diagnosis of asymptomatic right scrotal lipoma and left symptomatic inguinal hernia carried the patient to the surgical treatment. After the first surgical step of left hernia repair, we proceeded to the excision by an inguinoscrotal approach of a voluminous whitish neoplastic mass occupying the whole left scrotum and not involving homolateral testis. Results/conclusions: The histopathologic diagnosis was of neurofibroma, a benign neoplasm of peripheral nerves which rarely occurs at genital level.
