Adenomatoid tumor is rare benign tumor usually arising from Para testicular tissues (epididymis, tunica vaginalis or spermatic cord) predominately tail of epididymis and very rarely intratesticular tissues like tunica albuginea.  It is mesothelial in origin, mostly benign in nature usually affects middle age population (20—50 years). Due to diagnostic challenge especially for radiologist and rarity of cases we are reporting such a case report of Adenomatoid tumor of epididymis.
