Primary lymphomas of the spermatic cord are extremely rare. To date, only 15 cases have been reported in the international literature. Herein, we report a new case of a primary lymphoma of the spermatic cord. A 73-year-old patient presented at the Urology Department, complaining of bilateral painful masses at the inguino-scrotal region. A computed tomography scan revealed spermatic cord tumor. A right inguinal orchidectomy was performed in order to establish a definitive diagnosis. Macroscopically, the tumor was restricted to the spermatic cord area, leaving unaffected the testis and the epididymis. The histopathological and immune-histological evaluation has indicated a diffuse large B-cell lymphoma. Postoperatively, the patient was investigated thoroughly but no further signs of the disease were found.
