Abstract

Inflammatory pseudotuomr refers to a group of benign tumor like lesions that they are composed of a mixed inflammatory infiltrates. The diagnosis of these lesions and differentiation of them from malignant process may be difficult. We report on a 35-year- old man who presented with multiple painless palpable masses in his right hemiscrotum for about 6 months. Right epididymal involvement with intact testicle and spermatic cord were observed during scrotal exploration. After classic right epididymectomy, histopathologic studies revealed inflammatory pseudotumor of the right epididymis. No remarkable abnormal signs and symptoms were observed in the follow up visits after 8 months.
