  To the Editors: Six years after the publication of the last case of inflammatory testicular pseudotumor,1 we have a further case to add to the overview of the pseudoneoplastic entities arising in the testis and paratesticular structure,2 particularly interesting for its clinical management. A 70-year-old man presented with an asymptomatic, palpable nodule at the right testis. Ultrasonography (US) showed an 8-mm, solid, vascularized lesion at the testicular surface (Figure 1A). Testicular markers were normal.
