Angioleiomyomas are common benign smooth muscle tumors that occur in the subcutis of the extremities and to a lesser extent, of the head and trunk. Rarely, these tumors have been reported in other deeper tissues, but never within the testis. We present what we believe to be the first report of intratesticular angioleiomyoma, occurring in a 58-year-old man with a painless testicular swelling. Orchidectomy was the treatment of choice in this patient, as there was no reliable imaging technique to clinically distinguish this benign lesion from the more common malignant intratesticular tumors.
