Abstract

Ovarian epithelial type tumors of the testis have been a rare clinical entity. Its awareness and management remain a clinical challenge. We described the case of an 18-year-old, obese male patient who presented with scrotal enlargement. He underwent eversion of tunica vaginalis and resection of epididymal mass. The histology of the resected sample showed an ovarian epithelial type borderline tumor. We believe our case helps to strengthen awareness and management of this rare disease.
