Adenomatoid tumors are distinctive genital tract neoplasms that occur in both men and women. These are
commonly located in epididymis, uterus, fallopian tubes, ovary, testicular tunica and spermatic cord. Rarely
they are seen in extragenital locations like adrenal, bladder, pancreas, heart, pleura, mesentry, omentum
and lymph nodes. Adenomatoid tumors arising from the testis are rare as compared to those arising from
epididymis. Leiomyo-adenomatoid (LMAT) tumor is a variant of adenomatoid tumor with predominance
of smooth muscle component. Twelve cases of Leiomyo-adenomatoid (LMAT) tumor of uterus and only
three cases of LMAT of epididymis have been reported. We report an extremely rare case of LMAT arising
from tunica of testis in a 58 year old male.

Keywords: Adenomatoid tumor, Leiomyoadenomatoid (LMAT) tumor, Tunica of testis.
