OBJECTIVE: We report a rare clinical case of scrotum carcinoma and evaluate its treatment and prognosis.
METHODS: We describe the case of a 62 year old man who presented an ulcerated-bleeding lesion on the right side of the scrotum. The diagnostic tests found carcinoma of the scrotum. We performed surgical radical treatment preserving the left scrotum.
RESULTS: Histological examination showed lesions of well differentiated squamous cell tumor.
CONCLUSIONS: After literature review we conclude that scrotal carcinoma is currently a rare tumor, and even more in cases with industrial exposure to carcinogens. Its incidence has declined greatly and advanced cases requiring radical surgery are rare.
