A case of 70 years old man with a slowly enlarging painful scrotal mass is herein reported. Computed tomography scan of the scrotum showed a homogenous and encapsulated mass, associated with the tunica albuginea. There was no evidence of any metastatic lesion(s). Orchidectomy was performed with high ligation of the spermatic cord. Histopathologic examination revealed a rare case of paratesticular myxofibrosarcoma. Complete surgical resection is the only curative treatment modality in the treatment of these low grade tumors. Adjuvant chemotherapy or radiotherapy are not recommended for paratesticular myxofibrosarcomas.
