GOMEZ GARCIA, I. et al. Primary testicular lymphoma: Contribution of one case and literature review. Actas Urol Esp [online]. 2004, vol.28, n.2, pp.141-146. ISSN 0210-4806.

Primary testicular lymphoma is an uncommon testicular tumour that accounts for no more than 9% of all testicular tumours in those series with higher incidence; testicular lymphoma as haematopoietic tumours are also rare accounting for just 1% of all lymphomas; but due to their highly malignant histopathology they may become highly aggressive tumours. Patient age at presentation is over 60 years old which makes it the most frequent tumour for this age group. There is no standard protocol to treat this malignancy due to lack of extensive series. We contribute one case and make a literature review discussing the current therapeutic trends for this disease.

Keywords : Primary testicular lymphoma; Non-Hodgkin lymphoma; Extranodal lymphoma.
