Abstract

Spermatic cord liposarcoma is a rare tumor; currently only 161 cases are described in literature. Natural history of these tumors is marked by the high local recurrence rate. Radical surgery represents the therapy of choice whilst uncertain is the role of regional and retroperitoneal lymphadenectomy as well as the usefulness of adjuvant radiotherapy or chemotherapy. In this paper we describe our experience of two cases treated at our Department between 1995 and 2002 and discuss about the clinical management of this misleading tumor in the light of the several experiences reported in literature.
