  • Fibrous pseudotumors are rare benign lesions that originate within the paratesticular tissues. Local excision is the preferred method of treatment of these tumors over radical orchiectomy, however a definitive diagnosis must be made beforehand given the similarity of these tumors to malignant entities. We present a case of fibrous pseudotumor of the tunica vaginalis and cauda epididymis. A diagnosis of fibrous pseudotumor could not be established despite the use of intraoperative frozen section, therefore necessitating radical orchiectomy.
