ABSTRACT
Fibrous pseudotumor of the testicular tunics is a rare benign fibrous proliferative disorder, but it is the second most common mass-forining lesion of the testicular tunics. While these lesions are not strict neoplasms, they do form nodules and are often mistaken for neoplasms. Herein, we report 2 cases of fibrous pseudotumor with characteristic histologic findings. Both cases had been incidentally found as slow growing scrotal masses and underwent excision. There were several nodules along the testicular tunics which had bulging whitish-gray cut surface with focal myxoid change and a whorling appearance. These two cases showed the histologic spectrum seen in fibrous pseudotumor from a haphazard arrangement of fibroblastic type cells with intervening collagen and focal lymphocytic infiltrates in case 1, to a densely collagenized lesion in case 2.
Key Words: Fibrous pseudotumor; Testicular tunics
