Background: Paratesticular Fibrous Pseudotumor (PFP) is a rare benign tumor that is not a neoplasm but a reactive fibrous inflammatory hyperplasia that occurs from the vaginal tunica, epididymis or spermatic cord. The diagnosis of this entity is purely histological. Case Report: We report the case of a 22-year-old patient with no notable history, who presents a left testicular mass discovered by auto-palpation, which has gradually increased in size over the past 3 years. On physical examination, a left paratesticular mass is palpated, firm, not hard and painless. Ultrasound revealed the presence of an epididymal mass, scrotal MRI showed well-limited left tissue formation hypo-signal in T1, T2 and diffusion, which was markedly enhanced after injection of contrast product. The diagnosis of a benign fibrous tumor of the epididymis was retained on histological examination. Conclusion: Paratesticular fibrous tumors remain a rare entity of benign tumors, radiological exploration does not confirm the benignity of the tumor, and surgical exploration with an extemporaneous examination remains the most suitable attitude followed by excision of the tumor and the tunica vagina.
