Objective: To summarize our experiences in the diagnosis and
treatment of epidermoid cysts of testis.
Methods: The clinical and pathological features of three cases of
intratesticular epidermoid cysts were reported.
Results: In all three cases, an inguinal approach was applied for
testicular exploration. Medical history, physical examination and
pathological examination provided useful information for its
diagnosis. One patient underwent orchidectomy while the other
2 patients received testis-sparing surgery. All the three patients
did not suffer from local recurrence or metastases during the
follow-up (range, 6 months -3 years).
Conclusions: The epidermoid cysts of testis is a rare benign
tumor. Testis-sparing surgery is recommended for its treatment.
