Localized Scrotal Mass (Benign Testicular Tumor)

skro_26a_n.jpg: Operative findings in a 1.3-year-old boy with a localized painless mass within a not-irritable scrotum. The mass which lies within the testis is homogeneous, encapsulated and yellowish. Its growth is not infiltrating. skro_26b_n.jpg: Following enucleation of the localized mass some residual testicular tissue is visible. skro_26a_n.jpg and skro_26b_n.jpg: The histological diagnosis is a mature, differentiated teratoma. This proceeding - local excision or enucleation of the mass - was possible due to the preoperative ultrasound findings, the operative findings, the histological examination during surgery, and the knowledge of this type of tumor.
