Abstract

We present a case of well-differentiated papillary mesothelioma of the epididymis occurring in a 60-year-old man who came to urologic consult after recurrent episodes of haematospermia. The patient denied pain, fever and trauma in genitals. Local examination revealed indolent swelling at the right testicle and ecography localised a well-circumscribed nodule at the epididymis tail, measuring 2cm in greater diameter, with associated haemorrhagic hydrocele. A nodulectomy was performed and the patient is alive with no evidence of disease 17months following surgery.
