We present 3 cases of malignant fibrous histiocytoma arising from the spermatic cord. This tumor occurs rarely in genitourinary organs and only 2 cases involving the spermatic cord have been reported previously. Recurrence rates of approximately 44% of malignant fibrous histiocytoma in other sites are not improved by radiation or chemotherapy as adjuvants or primary means of treatment. Radical inguinal orchiectomy along with en bloc local resection is the therapy of choice.
