Most masses encountered within the scrotal sac are in the testis and are neoplastic. However, asubset of these tumours are extratesticular and arise from the paratesticular tissue. The paratesticular region is a complex anatomical area which includes the contents of the spermatic cord, testicular tunics, the epididymis and the testis (1). Histogenetically, this area is composed of a variety of epithelial, mesothelial and mesenchymal elements. Rhabdomyosarcoma of the male genital tract is rare. If present, it is usually seen in children and adolescents and is of the embryonal type. We present here, a case of alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma in an elderly patient.
