Abstract: Abstract Angiomyolipoma (AML) is a benign mesenchymal tumor, that is composed of thick-walled blood vessels, smooth muscle cells and adipose tissue. They are commonly seen in kidneys, testicles are not a typical location for AML’s; many solid testicular tumors are germ cell malignancies. Here we report the sixth testicular AML case in the literature, to our knowledge. An 80-year-old male undergone bilateral orchiectomy with the diagnosis of local invasive prostate cancer, without any testicular symptoms. Pathological analysis demonstrated a tumor, involving nearly the whole left testicle, composed of muscle cells, vessels and fat tissue, diagnosed as testicular AML. In this article our case is reported and we also make a literature review about testicular AML’s.
