Abstract

Primary leiomyosarcoma of testis is a rare entity with few cases reported in literature. Primary leiomyosarcoma of testis usually occurs following radiotherapy or long-term anabolic steroid use. Without these predisposing factors, its occurrence is rare. In the present study, we present a rare case of primary leiomyosarcoma of testis occurring in an elderly patient, with an unusual presentation mimicking epididymo-orchitis and metastasis eight months following high inguinal orchidectomy.
