[Bilateral testicular epidermoid cyst in a pediatric patient with Klinefelter syndrome].
ABSTRACT Epidermoid cysts of the testis are rare in children (3% of all the testicular tumors). Bilateral appearance has only been described in the pediatric age in 2 cases and none associated to Klinefelter's syndrome. We present, for our knowledge, the first case of bilateral epidermoid testicular cyst associated to klinefelter's syndrome in a boy, highlighting its management and therapeutic approach. We analyze the different kinds of treatment.
