ALVAREZ MAESTRO, Mario et al. Adenomatoid tumors of the epididymis and testicle: report of 9 cases and bibliographic review. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2009, vol.62, n.2, pp.137-141. ISSN 0004-0614.
Objective: To report the cases of adenomatoid tumors seen at Hospital Universitario La Paz in the last 15 years. Methods: A clinical, pathological, and surgical study was conducted of males with testicular or paratesticular tumors with a histological report of adenomatoid tumor. Results: Among the nine cases studied, seven had paratesticular and two intratesticular adenomatoid tumors. Treatment of choice was mass removal for epididymal tumors and orchidectomy for intratesticular tumors. Conclusions: Adenomatoid tumors are uncommon benign neoplasms of a possible mesothelial origin. Because of their benign nature, the treatment of choice is local excision (conservative surgery), but orchidectomy was performed in two cases due to tumor location.
