Sažetak
We report a case of malignant mesothelioma of tunica vaginalis testis in 75-year-old man with no prior exposure to asbestos. A history of asbestos exposure has been reported in 35% of patients with this disease. The patient presented with swelling of the left testis. Histopatology showed that the left epididymis and testis were intact and that mass excised during the operation was a paratesticular tumour arising from the tunica vaginalis. Therefore, the resection was considered complete, and no other therapy was introduced. Immunohistochemistry of surgical samples showed positivity of tumor cell for caltenin, WT, vimentin, CK7 and D2-40, and were negative to EMA and CK5/6. So both, histopathology and immunohistochemistry of surgical samples of the tunica vaginalis testis revealed the diagnosis of epithelial mesothelioma. Computerized tomography (CT) scans of chest, abdomen and pelvis performed month and a half after operation have not demostrated any signs of tumor spred and were negative for metastatic disease. The patient is currently free from disease. Malignant mesothelioma is usualy originating from pleura, pericardium and peritoneum but, rarely as in our case, it can originate from tunica vaginalis testis. Malignant mesothelioma of the tunica vaginalis testis is a big rarity in patients with no prior exposure to asbestos.
