Authors report a case of probably iatrogenic paratesticular fibrous pseudotumor. A 33-year-old man presented with a history of increased scrotal volume after laborious urethral catheterism. Ultrasound scanning first suggested testicular malignant lesion. Surgical findings showed thick and fibrous scrotal wall surrounding a pseudocystic cavity which contained urine coming from a bulbar urethral rupture. Testicles were normal. Urethral suture and total excision of the scrotal mass were performed. Diagnosis was histologically corrected. Diagnosis and management are discussed with a review of the literature.
