Abstract

We report a case of malignant mesothelioma of the testicular tunica vaginalis. A preceding hydrocele showed mesothelial hyperplasia of its lining. The tumor was treated surgically as well as with a combination of radiotherapy and chemotherapy but it progressed, resulting in death within 21 months from the diagnosis. The relationship of the tumor to mesothelial hyperplasia and to previous exposure to asbestos is discussed.
