Abstract
Objective
To describe a rare pathology, the liposarcoma of the spermatic cord (LSC), and discuss its diagnosis and treatment.

Materials and Methods
We report a case of well-differentiated LSC in a 61-year-old man. The main complaint was painless enlargement in the right inguinoscrotal area that appeared 6 months prior to presentation. Ultrasonography showed a heterogeneous and hyperechogenic mass of the right spermatic cord that was highly suspicious of malignancy. Computed tomography confirmed a heterogeneous supratesticular mass. The mass was surgically removed.

Results
Pathological examination showed a well-differentiated LSC. The patient did not receive any additional treatment. The follow-up did not present complications or further symptoms and, at present, the patient is in complete remission.

Conclusion
LCSs are a very rare entity. The diagnosis is difficult and often mistaken with common scrotal swelling associated with a hernia, hydrocele, or other tumour. Treatment should include complete surgical excision, usually by radical inguinal orchiectomy. A long follow-up period is necessary.....
