CANOVAS IVORRA, José Antonio et al. Spermatic cord leiomyosarcoma: Case report and bibliographic review. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2009, vol.62, n.1, pp.70-73. ISSN 0004-0614.

Objective: To report one new case of paratesticular leiomyosarcoma. Methods: We describe the case of a 68 year-old male patient consulting for right groin pain over two years with a physical examination corresponding to right inguinal hernia. During surgery for hernia correction a paratesticular mass was discovered. Results: Right radical orchiectomy was performed. After the operation there was a recurrence at the scar which was operated and finally the disease progressed both locally and systemically. Conclusions: We point out the scarce frequency of this type of tumours. We believe that orchiectomy and excision of the cord is the treatment of choice. The use of adjuvant therapies doesn't influence survival significantly.
