Abstract


Adenomatoid tumours (ATs) are rare intra - scrotal neoplasms. Although a diagnosis of this type may be suspected when found in the epididymis, an intra - testicular location can cause a diagnostic and therapeutic dilemma. Thus, we report our experience with intra - scrotal adenomatoid tumours - 5 epididymal, 1 intra - testicular, and 1 involving the epididymis and testis, as well as a literature review to better understand this benign but clinically significant lesion.

 

Οι αδενωματώδεις όγκοι του οσχέου είναι σπάνια νεοπλάσματα. Αν και μια υπόνοια διάγνωσης αυτού του τύπου μπορεί να τεθεί όταν ένα νεόπλασμα με παρόμοια χαρακτηριστικά βρεθεί στην επιδιδυμίδα, όταν εντοπίζεται στον όρχι μπορεί να προκαλέσει διαγνωστικό και θεραπευτικό δίλημμα. Στο παρόν άρθρο αναφέρουμε την εμπειρία μας με τους ενδοοσχεϊκούς αδενωματώδεις όγκους: Πέντε της επιδιδυμίδας, ένα του όρχεως και έναν που εντοπιζόταν ταυτόχρονα και στον όρχι και στην επιδιδυμίδα. Επιπλέον παρατίθεται μια επισκόπηση της βιβλιογραφίας για την καλύτερη κατανόηση αυτής της καλοήθους αλλά κλινικά σημαντικής οντότητας.
