  • Primary lymphoma of the spermatic cord is rare. We report a case of primary lymphoma of the spermatic cord and review the literature. A 77-year-old man presented with a 5 month history of an enlarging right inguino-scrotal mass. On physical exam, the mass involved the spermatic cord. Computerized tomography and magnetic resonance imaging revealed a 10 cm x 4 cm inguinoscrotal mass related to the spermatic cord. A right inguinal orchidectomy with wide local excision was performed. Pathological and immunohistochemical evaluation identified the tumor as a diffuse large B cell lymphoma of the spermatic cord. Postoperatively, patient began a chemoradiotherapy regimen consistent with metastatic lymphoma.
