Abstract

Paratesticularleiomyosarcomas are rare neoplasms. Radical orchidectomy and high ligation of cord
followed by surveillance is the treatment of choice. Here we report a 73-year-old man who presented
with a 2-year history of painless lump in the left hemiscrotum. A left radical orchiectomy with high
ligation of the spermatic cord was performed. The histo-pathological and immunohistochemistry
evaluation revealed a moderately differentiated leiomyosarcoma of paratesticular region. The
patient is still alive with no evidence of local recurrence and distant metastasis after seven years of
follow-up.
