Liposarcoma of the Spermatic Cord mimicking Inguinal Hernia. Case Report
Liposarcoma of the spermatic cord is a rare malignant tumor presented with painless slow growing inguinal mass. Embryologically it is of mesodermal tissue origin. They may appear in any part in the body which contains adipose tissue.
We present here a 54 year old male patient who presented with a slow growing right inguinal mass of two years duration which mimics inguinal hernia. It was painless with no history of trauma.
Patient was investigated and found to have a big mixed intensity soft mass lesion in the inguinoscrotal area. He underwent radical orchiectomy with cord excision. Biopsy proved to be spermatic cord Liposarcoma which was completely excised.
Review of literature revealed that this type of tumor is very rare and no more than 185 cases are reported and thus there is no clear cuts concerning its behavior and management and prognosis.
