MARTIN MARTIN, S. et al. Malignant fibrous hitiocytoma of the spermatic cord: Presentation of one case and literature revision. Actas Urol Esp [online]. 2008, vol.32, n.7, pp.745-748. ISSN 0210-4806.
We present a case of malignant fibrous histiocytoma (MFH) of the spermatic cord. An 80-years old man was admitted to the hospital with a left scrotal mass, related to a genital traumatism several months ago. Under the suspicion of a testicular tumor, left radical orchiectomy was performed. Histological examination of the tumoral mass revealed a malignant fibrous histiocytoma. The tumor was firmly adhered to the spermatic cord. MFH is an extremely rare, highly malignant connective tissue tumor, which may, occasionally, affect the male genital tract. There are no agreed treatment principles. The overall prognosis is poor.
