Abstract

We report a rare case of intrascrotal extratesticular malignant schwannoma with rhabdomyoblastic features in a 48-year-old man. Malignant schwannomas, which arise from the peripheral nerves, usually occur in the extremities, the trunk or paravertebral areas. The patient had no manifestation of von Recklinghausen's disease. To our knowledge, there has been no intrascrotal extratesticular malignant schwannoma reported.
