Neurofibroma is a benign tumor of the nerve sheath, which is considered to originate from the Schwann cell. Since neural tissues are found throughout the body these tumors can occur in a variety of sites. Intrascrotal extratesticular localization of neurofibromas have been reported extremetely rarely in the literature. A 45-year-old man admitted to our clinic with a four year history of gradually enlarging mass and scrotal discomfort in the left hemiscrotum. With a preoperative diagnosis of testicular or paratesticular tumor, exploration and frozen examination were performed. The pathological diagnosis of the lesion was neurofibroma of the paratesticular region. Although a relatively rare disease, intrascrotal extratesticular neurofibroma should be considered in the differential diagnosis of testicular and paratesticular malign tumors.
