Paratesticular liposarcomas (PLs), first reported in 1952, are rare tumors that comprise approximately 3%–7% of all paratesticular sarcomas. PL of unknown etiology typically affects adults aged 50–60 years and rarely occurs in the young. Here, we report one case of an 18-year-old male patient presenting with a mobile, firm, painless, and nontender testicular mass measuring about 7 cm in greatest dimension. Testicular tumor markers were negative. On cytological (fine-needle aspiration cytology) examination, features were suggestive of a malignant mesenchymal tumor. Subsequently, he underwent radical orchiectomy along with high ligation of the spermatic cord. A wide local scrotal excision was also done, which was followed by histopathological examination. A diagnosis of PL was made which was confirmed by immunohistochemical examination with vimentin positive and negative for desmin and myogenin. Since there is no definite consensus of opinion as regards to the role of adjuvant radiotherapy and chemotherapy, the patient received none. He remained recurrence free after an 18-month regular follow-up.
