Ganglioneuroma is a benign tumor, affecting the central nervous system, commonly seen in children and young adults. Non-cranial ganglioneuromas are seen predominantly in the posterior mediastinum and retroperitoneum. Paratesticular neoplasms are extremely rare and are susceptible to clinical misinterpretation as malignancy. Tumors of nerve origin are a rarity in the paratesticular region, with a few cases of schwannoma and malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor being reviewed in the literature. A rare case of ganglioneuroma involving the paratesticular region in an adult is presented.
