We report a case of testicular hamartomas in association with Cowden disease. Clinical examination of the patient, a 39-year-old man, revealed a palpable mass in the right side of the scrotum. Sonographic examination showed that the mass was either a spermatocele or an epididymal cyst and that multiple hyperechoic lesions were present in both testes. On subsequent MRI, the appearance of these lesions was consistent with that of fat-containing hamartomas. Testicular biopsy was not performed, but follow-up serial sonographic examination was recommended. To our knowledge, this report is the first to describe testicular hamartomas as a probable manifestation of Cowden disease.
