Reticulum Cell Sarcoma with Primary Manifestation in the Testicle

Authors: CARLOS A. NARANJO MD, STANLEY J. KANDZARI MD, D FRANKLIN MILAM MD

Abstract

Abstract: Reticulum cell sarcoma of the testis usually occurs in men after the fifth decade of life. Whether reticulum cell sarcoma of the testicle is a primary tumor or part of a diffuse entity is still disputed. Sometimes this tumor is histologically confused with seminoma. In these cases, the correct diagnosis can be made only by testing with special reticulum stains. In general, reticulum cell sarcoma is associated with a poor prognosis and radiation therapy is the treatment of choice. Even though the results of a physical examination are normal, exploration of the contralateral testicle is suggested because bilateral involvement is possible.
