Abstract

Tumours of the testicular adnexa include a heterogeous group of mesothelial, mesenchymal and germ cell tumours. Adenomatoid tumour, pseudosarcomatous myofibroblastic proliferations and rhabdomyosarcoma are the more frequently encountered neoplasms. Lymphoma/leukemic infiltration secondary to testicular involvement or primary tumour elsewhere is not unusual. However, Primary ParaTesticular Lymphoma (PPTL) involving spermatic cord and/or epididymis with sparing of the testicular parenchyma is extremely rare. Accurate staging and typing is crucial for effective management. We present a rare case of Diffuse Large B Cell Lymphoma (DLBCL) involving the left paratesticular tissue with testicular sparing in a young immunocompetant male patient.
