GARRIDO ABAD, Pablo et al. Adenomatoid tumor of the epididymis: report of two cases. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2007, vol.60, n.6, pp.700-703. ISSN 0004-0614.

Objective: Tumors of the epididymis are rare. They are ususally benign and adenomatoid tumors are the most frequent. Report of two cases of this kind of tumor of the epididymis. Methods/Results: We report two cases of adenomatoid tumor of the epididymis diagnosed at our hospital during last year. Two males, 35 and 54 years old respectively asked for urology consultation about a palpable scrotal mass. They didn´t have any other symptoms. Imaging techniques revealed a solid epididymal mass. Epidydimectomy was performed. Pathological diagnosis was adenomatoid tumor. Conclusions: The majority of epipidydimal tumors follow a benign course. In the finding of an epididymal mass, after palpation and imaging tests, organ sparing surgery (epididymectomy) is recommended. We will avoid unnecessary orchiectomies.

Keywords : Adenomatoid tumor; Benign; Epidydimis.
