Case report: malignant mesothelioma of the tunica vaginalis testis--an indolent course.

Author information

  • Department of Radiation Oncology, Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital, Devon, UK.


Malignant mesothelioma of the tunica vaginalis testis is an extremely rare tumour. So far less than 50 cases have been reported in the literature. Radical inguinal orchiectomy appears to be the optimal treatment. Upon recurrence, treatment remains unsatisfactory. A further case is reported here, where the disease ran an indolent course despite several recurrences after initial treatment.
