Abstract

Malignant fibrous histiocytoma (MFH) of the spermatic cord represents an uncommon location for the most common soft-tissue tumor in adults. MFH of the spermatic cord is such a rare entity that only 28 case reports have been described in the literature to date. The rarity of MFH of the spermatic cord has made diagnosis, staging, and treatment difficult. Solutions to such questions will only be answered as our database continues to expand. Therefore, this case report is presented in hopes of lending statistical power to future analysis of the correct treatment planning, mortality rates, and prognostic indications of a relatively unknown subset of a common disease.
