Abstract

Background

Primary tumors of the paratesticular region are rare, with paratesticular sarcomas constituting a major proportion of these tumors, particularly in the elderly. The paratesticular region consists of mesothelial, various epithelial and mesen¬chymal cells and may therefore give rise to a number of tumors with various behaviors.

Case presentation

We present a case of a 63-year-old male with a paratesticular mass clinically diagnosed as Epididymal cyst. Histopathological examination finally led to the diagnosis of undifferentiated pleomorphic sarcoma.

Conclusions

We report this case due to its rarity and due to the limited nature of data and definitional variations.

Key-words

Pleomorphic sarcoma, sarcoma, paratestis
