Fibrous pseudotumor is the third most common paratesticular mass, after lipoma and adenomatoid tumor. It is not a true neoplasm but represents a benign reactive fibrous proliferation resulting from one or several paratesticular elements, more often from the tunica vaginalis (12, 14, 22, 23, 47, 48, 54, 55).
Based on the histopathology and the IHC reactions, the lesion appeared benign and was diagnosed as adenomatoid tumor with psammoma bodies.
