Cavernous hemangioma of the testis: a case report and review of the literature

元データ 泌尿器科紀要刊行会


A 73-year-old man consulted our hospital with a painless intra-scrotal mass in the left testis. Serum levels of human beta-chorionic gonadotropin and alpha-fetoprotein were normal. Scrotal ultrasonography demonstrated left testis with a heterogeneous texture. A diagnosis of probable testicular malignancy was made, and a left radical orchiectomy was performed. The histopathological diagnosis was testicular cavernous hemangioma. To our knowledge, only 19 cases of cavernous hemangioma of the testis have been reported in the literature so far. Although this is a rare tumor, it should be considered in the differential diagnosis of testicular tumor.
