Filariasis commonly presents with symptoms due to lymphatic obstruction leading to nonpitting edema and only rarely presents as a mass lesion. We encountered a case which presented as a paratesticular mass without a hydrocele. This kind of mass presentation can misleadthe clinician for a neoplastic lesion and may lead to unnecessary panic for the patient. We outline this case of filariasis mimicking as paratesticular neoplasm with review of literature. Source
