ABSTRACT
Scrotal leiomyoma is a benign tumor derived from the scrotal dartos muscle; it is rare in clinical findings. The cause of the disease is not yet clear. Here, we present the case of a patient with no typical clinical features, but with some typical pathological changes. A middle-aged male patient saw a doctor for paroxysmal itching and burning of the scrotum. The physical examination revealed 3 × 5-cm(2), ill-defined, pink plaques, an uneven surface, and basal infiltration with pigmentation defects in the center. Pathology results showed dermal spindle cells in nodular hyperplasia. The nucleus was round at both ends, a perinuclear halo could be seen, and staining was positive for actin and negative for S100. Therefore, the diagnosis of scrotal myoma was made.

Figure 1: Pink, hyperplastic plaques, with an uneven surface, basal infiltration, and ill-defined, sheet depigmentation in the center.

Mentions: A physical examination revealed no special abnormalities. A more in-depth examination revealed an approximately 3 × 5-cm2, pink, ill-defined, hyperplastic plaque with an uneven surface, basal infiltration, sheet depigmentation in the center (fig. 1), and nearly superficial lymph nodes without palpable enlargement.
