Abstract

We describe a very unusual form of sarcoidosis of the testis, mimicking malignancy at initial presentation. Genitourinary sarcoidosis is rare and this case report emphasizes the importance of meticulous analysis of the patient’s clinical history combined with imaging findings and specific pathological criteria to diagnose this granulomatous disorder.
