    Abstract

    Text-Size + 

  • Paratesticular sarcomas are a rare entity and provide a unique clinical challenge due to their slow growing, often painless natural course. Adding to this challenge is the complex anatomy of the scrotum that allows these masses to mimic other conditions, including inguinal hernia, cysts, or fluid collections. We report such a case and our approach to an 83-year-old male with dedifferentiated liposarcoma of the spermatic cord with a history of inguinal hernia. In doing so, we highlight the need for thorough evaluation of scrotal masses and the management of these rare, though well-described, tumors.
