Author: T. Jankovichova, M. Jankovich, D. Ondrus, K. Kajo, J. Dubravicky, J. Breza


INTRODUCTION: Malignant mesothelioma of tunica vaginalis testis is an extremely rare tumour. It is often caused by exposition to asbestos, however, more often its occurrence is sporadic. The diagnosis is usually set secondarily during hydrocele surgery. This type of tumour should be considered in cases with with atypical hydrocele, especially haematocele or atypical shape of seminal covering.
RESULTS: A case of an asbestos-exposed patient with described disease and long-term hydrocele is presented. The number of patients is so small that the guidelines are limited due to low statistical power (Fig. 2, Ref. 14).

Keywords: mesothelioma, genital neoplasms, male; asbestos, testicular hydrocele.
