Primary testicular leiomyosarcoma is an uncommon tumor with only few cases described in literature. In young people this rare tumor seems to be related to radiotherapy and anabolic steroids abuse. In older people there are apparently no risk factors. We describe one further case in a 77-years old man with full histological and ultrastructural evaluation. A short term follow-up of one year signals no recurrence of the disease.
