Malignant fibrous histiocytoma of the spermatic cord is rare, with only 6 previously reported cases. We describe 2 new cases that were treated with retroperitoneal lymphadenectomy. To our knowledge, this is the first report in the literature of retroperitoneal lymphadenectomy for the treatment of this specific lesion. The literature is reviewed in regard to the sarcomatous nature of this tumor and the use of retroperitoneal lymphadenectomy performed for spermatic cord sarcomas. We conclude that this procedure should be considered strongly as a surgical adjunct to wide local excision in the management of this unusual tumor.
