Abstract/OtherAbstract:
INTRODUCTION: Paratesticular tumours are rare. Rhabdomyosarcomas are the commonest malignant paratesticular tumours although tumours can arise from any paratesticular structure. Here we report a case of a primary paratesticular seminoma and a review of the literature. PRESENTATION OF CASE: A 42 year old man presented with a right scrotal mass. Histology revealed a paratesticular seminoma. Following a radical orchidectomy, there was no evidence of testicular seminoma. DISCUSSION: Primary paratesticular seminoma in the absence of testicular seminoma is extremely rare. CONCLUSION: After a thorough review of the literature, this is, to our knowledge only the second reported case of a primary paratesticular seminoma.
