Primary paratesticular adult ganglioneuroma

Urology. 2004 Mar;63(3):584-5. doi: 10.1016/j.urology.2003.10.068.


Ganglioneuroma is a rare benign tumor, usually seen in children and young adults, arising in the central nervous system. Most of the noncranial ganglioneuromas are located in the posterior mediastinum and the retroperitoneum. We report the first case of a primary, adult paratesticular ganglioneuroma that presented as a paratesticular mass. The patient underwent surgical intervention for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes.
