Abstract

A 70-year-old male who had undergone gastrectomy due to gastric cancer 6 years previously visited our department complaining of perineal and bilateral scrotal mass. Biopsy specimen of the perineal mass showed well-differentiated adenocarcinoma. The spermatic cords were resected en bloc with the entire scrotal content, penis and perineal skin. Histological examination of the spermatic cord, epididymis and perineal subcutaneous tissue revealed well differentiated adenocarcinoma similar to that of the lesion resected from the stomach 6 years earlier. The patient was followed for 2 years with no evidence of recurrence. Metastatic tumors of the spermatic cord and epididymis resulting from gastric cancer are rare and 31 cases previously reported in the Japanese literature are reviewed.
