J Clin Ultrasound. 2012 May;40(4):252-4. doi: 10.1002/jcu.20888. Epub 2011 Oct 27.


We report the sonographic findings in a case of fibrous pseudotumor of the tunica vaginalis. Scrotal gray-scale sonography revealed a well-margined, hypoechoic mass with an onion ring appearance and central calcifications in the left scrotum. Color Doppler sonography showed no blood flow within the mass. The pathological examination revealed a fibrous pseudotumor with a paucicellular and fibroblastic proliferation of cells within a hyalinized collagenous stroma.
