RODRIGUEZ GARCIA, Nuria; LLANES GONZALEZ, Luis; PASCUAL MATEO, Carlos  and  BERENGUER SANCHEZ, Antonio. Spermatic cord rabdomyosarcoma in an adult. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2005, vol.58, n.9, pp.956-959. ISSN 0004-0614.

OBJECTIVES: To report one case of spermatic cord rabdomyosarcoma in an adult patient. METHODS: We report the case of a 36-year-old male presenting with a painful left inguinal scrotal mass. RESULTS: Left radical orchiectomy was performed with excision of the mass. Pathology showed a spermatic cord rabdomyosarcoma. The patient received several cycles of systemic chemotherapy. CONCLUSIONS: Spermatic cord rabdomyosarcoma is a rare tumor derived from the undifferentiated mesoderm. It rarely appears after the second decade of life. Localregional recurrence after surgery is very frequent. There are adjuvant treatments, the indication and use of which couldn’t be included in proper protocols due to the low incidence of this tumour in adults.

Keywords : Spermatic cord rabdomyosarcoma.
