Abstract

We report a case of polyorchidism, a rare congenital anomaly, frequently discovered by chance. At current knowledge is still not defined which is the best clinical and therapeutic approach as well the best follow- up scheme due to the unclear malignant potential and rate of complications if a conservative approach is used. MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) seems to be a good method to discriminate this mass from others pathological findings but there is still not enough evidence to standardize the procedure.
