Introduction: The entire spectrum of ovarian surface epithelial-type tumors has been reported in the testis and paratestis, including serous, mucinous, endometrioid, clear cell, and Brenner tumors. Majority of the cases consist of serous and mucinous tumors, with serous borderline tumor (SBT) being the most common subtype. SBTs do not recur or metastasize.
