ABSTRACT
Paratesticular papillary serous tumors have been rarely reported, and they often resemble ovarian serous tumors of borderline malignancy. We experienced a case of papillary serous tumor in the left paratestis of a 39-year-old man. This is the second case reported in the Korean literature. The tumor, which was found incidentally during an operation for a hydrocele, was composed of papillary structures lined by cuboidal to columnar epithelial cells that displayed low cytologic atypia and frequent psammoma bodies.
Key Words: Papillary serous tumor; Paratestis
