We report on a case of liposarcoma of the spermatic cord treated with radical orchidectomy and wide excision of the tumour without adjuvant treatment. After 16 years of follow up, neither local nor distant recurrences were detected. Spermatic cord liposarcoma is a rare disease. The basic treatment for all patients with spermatic cord liposarcoma is radical orchidectomy with wide local resection and high ligature of the spermatic cord. The role of postoperative irradiation depends on pathologic findings. Local recurrences are rare but because of late events, a long follow-up is mandatory.
