Abstract

Testicular adrenal rest tumors are a rare development of patients with congenital adrenal hyperplasia. It is difficult to diagnose due to similarities with Leydig cell tumors. Treatment can be conservative or surgical. We describe the case of a 56 year old male presenting with bilateral testicular pain and irregular growth that was managed with a unilateral orchiectomy. We analyzed the distinguishing factors of testicular adrenal rest tumors compared to Leydig cell tumors, as well as the diagnostic and treatment methods.
