Abstract: We report a case of testicular thecoma in an 11-year-old Japanese boy with nevoid basal-cell carcinoma syndrome (Gorlin syndrome). He presented with left testicular swelling and underwent a radical orchiectomy on suspicion of a malignant paratesticular tumor. The tumor arose from the testis exophytically and was diagnosed as a thecoma histopathologically. Ovarian thecoma-fibroma group tumors are closely associated with Gorlin syndrome or with abnormalities in PTCH, a candidate gene for the syndrome. The occurrence of an extremely rare testicular thecoma in this case (the second in the literature) suggests that such an etiological association may also exist in the pathogenesis of testicular tumors.
