Abstract

Introduction

Fibroangioma is a rare benign tumor and is located most commonly in nasopharynx but it has been reported to occur in different parts of the body. No case of fibroangioma scrotum has been reported in the literature.

Case report

We present a patient of scrotal  fibroangioma and our experience in managing it. A 48 year male presented with recurrent discharge of blood from scrotum for last three months. We did partial scrotectomy to excise the involved skin and scrotoplasty to close the wound. Post-operative recovery was uneventful with patient becoming symptom free in follow-up period.

Conclusions

Scrotal fibroangioma should be managed on the same principle of its management elsewhere in the body. Painless bleeding from scrotum without fever or itching has high chances of being fibroangioma.
