Abstract

Paratesticular liposarcomas are rare tumors and are often reported as isolated cases. Patients usually present with a painless scrotal or inguinal mass, mimicking inguinal hernia. They refer to liposarcomas arising from the spermatic cord, testicular tunics, and epididymis. We report a case of bilateral scrotal swelling which was misdiagnosed as inguinal hernia. Intraoperative diagnosis of testicular tumor was made. High inguinal orchiectomy was done. Histopathological examination revealed it to be liposarcoma of the cord. To our knowledge, there is no reported case of bilateral paratesticular liposarcoma in English literature, hence we report this case.
