Neuroendocrine tumors most commonly occur in the gastrointestinal tract, lungs and pancreas. Primary testicular neuroendocrine tumors are rare, constituting 0.23% of all testicular tumors. A 35-year-old man presented to urology department with a painless left scrotal mass. He had no history of trauma. Scrotal Doppler ultrasonography revealed a 2×1.5 cm, well-circumscribed, solid lesion. Tumor marker levels were normal and staging computed tomography demonstrated no evidence of metastasis. The patient subsequently underwent left radical orchiectomy. The orchiectomy material, grossly showed a 1.4x1.2 cm, well-circumscribed, yellow, solid mass. On histopathologic examination, primary testicular carcinoid tumors cannot be distinguished from well-differentiated neuroendocrine carcinoma. The diagnosis of a primary testicular carcinoid tumor was made after ruling out an extratesticular neuroendocrine tumor using clinical and radiological data. This rare case is presented with clinical, morphological and immunohistochemical features. 

Nöroendokrin tümörler, sıklıkla gastrointestinal sistem, akciğer ve pankreas gibi organlarda görülmektedir. Primer testiküler nöroendokrin tümörler son derece nadir olup, tüm testis tümörlerinin %0.23’ünü oluşturur. 35 yaşındaki hasta, sol skrotumda ağrısız şişlik şikayeti ile üroloji kliniğine başvurdu. Hastada travma hikayesi bulunmamaktaydı. Skrotal Doppler ultrasonograsinde sol testis alt polde 2x1.5 cm boyutlarında düzgün sınırlı solid kitle izlendi. Tümör markerları ve bilgisayar tomografi taramaları normaldi ve hastada metastaz izlenmedi. Hastaya sol radikal orşiektomi uygulandı. Orşiektomi materyali, makroskobik olarak 1.4x1.2 cm boyutlarda düzgün sınırlı, sarı solid kitle olarak izlendi. Histopatolojik incelemede primer testiküler karsinoid tümör, iyi diferansiye nöroendokrin karsinomdan ayırt edilemedi. Primer testiküler karsinoid tümör tanısı, klinik ve radyolojik olarak ekstratestiküler nöroendokrin tümör dışlanarak yapıldı. Bu nadir olgu, morfolojik ve immunhistokimyasal özellikleri ile sunulmuştur.
