Ectopic adrenal cortical tissue is a benign lesion. Although routine search for this lesion is not indicated, it should be resected for histological analysis and differential diagnosis when it is found during a surgical procedure in this area. Ectopic adrenal tissue in the spermatic cord is not a very rare finding in male neonates and babies. But, to our knowledge, its simultaneous occurrence with the testicular cancer has been reported only in one case(4). In this case report, we present a 3 month old baby boy who had ectopic adrenal tissue in association with testicular teratoma in the spermatic cord.
