Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

Adenomatoid tumor of the epididymis is unfrequent, benign, with no malignant outcomes described.

METHODS:

We report five cases, with patient's ages varying from 31 to 76 years, and tumor sizes from 6 to 30 mm. All patients underwent surgery with excision of the mass, some of them after several months of growing. In one of the cases the evolution reached six years.

RESULTS:

None of the cases presented recurrence or bad outcome after surgery. Pathology confirmed the benign adenomatoid character in all cases.

CONCLUSIONS:

Despite the clinical, ultrasound and physical examination findings suggest the localization in the epididymis and its benign character, surgical exploration is mandatory with surgical excision of the paratesticular mass.
