Myxomas are gelatinous tumours that commonly appear as circumscribed masses situated within muscles. It can occur at various sites. However, mostly found in cardiac muscles and skeletal muscles of extremities. Published cases of intrascrotal myxoma are rare in literature. A 28-year-old male was admitted to our General Surgery Department with a history of a gradually enlarging mass in the scrotum and scrotal discomfort since two years. After cytological and imaging investigations, a scrotal exploration was performed with plexiform neurofibroma as the preoperative diagnosis. Histopathological examination of the specimen revealed features of intramuscular myxoma. Although a relatively rare diagnosis, intramuscular myxoma should be considered as a differential diagnosis of testicular and paratesticular tumours.
