A variety of extratesticular tumors and tumor-like conditions can occur in the scrotum. Angiomyofibroblastoma is a rare, slow-growing, well-circumscribed mesenchymal tumor, found predominantly in women, and is even a more unusual occurrence in the male genital tract. We describe a case of a 64-year-old male presenting with a scrotal painless mass. On sonography, a well-circumscribed extratesticular mass was present. As no specific imaging findings were present, it was a surprise to learn that the subsequently excised mass proved to be an angiomyofibroblastoma-like tumor. To the best of our knowledge, the sonographic appearance of this tumor in the scrotum has been reported previously in only one case.
