Abstract

We report an 8-month-old boy with stage 1 neuroblastoma, whose "testicular tumor" was removed during a "radical orchiectomy" by a pediatric surgeon who encountered a scrotal mass during a hernia repair. Pathologic examination of the specimen suggested seminoma and the surgeon sent the patient for cisplatin-based chemotherapy. However, follow-up examination showed a normal testis. Reexamination of the specimen in other laboratories proved neuroblastoma. The patient is tumor free after 36 months of follow-up. This case shows that in presence of hernia, distorted anatomy, and inguinal testis, paratesticular tumors can be misdiagnosed for the testis and cause great diagnostic and therapeutic difficulty. © 2009 by Lippincott Williams & Wilkins.
