Abstract

Coexistence of bilateral seminomas and adenomatoid tumor is rare. We encountered an interesting case of bilateral testicular seminomas along with a paratesticular nodule which was diagnosed as an adenomatoid tumor on histology. Although seminomas and adenomatoid tumor are frequent neoplasms, bilaterality and their coexistence have been rarely described and can pose diagnostic difficulties. Herein, we describe a case of a 53-year-old man who presented with bilateral testicular swellings which were diagnosed as bilateral seminomas with an adenomatoid tumor in the left paratesticular region on histopathology. The pathological findings of these coexistent tumors and the utility of immunohistochemistry in establishing a correct diagnosis in such scenarios are discussed.
