abstract

  • Epidermoid cysts of the testis are rare benign lesions that clinically resemble intratesticular neoplasms. Preoperative testicular ultrasound and an operative frozen section biopsy may help to establish the diagnosis without resorting to orchiectomy. In such selected cases local excision alone should be considered adequate without violating accepted surgical principles.
