Resumen

XU, F  y  WANG, Y. Metastatic tumour of spermatic cords, epididymis and seminiferous duct from gastric carcinoma. West Indian med. j. [online]. 2013, vol.62, n.9, pp. 859-860. ISSN 0043-3144.

Metastatic tumour of spermatic cords, epididymis and seminiferous duct from gastric carcinoma has been recently reported but rarely seen. A case of metastatic tumour from gastric carcinoma in a 50-year old man is herein reported. The initial diagnosis was thickening of both spermatic cords. Needle biopsy of the spermatic cord, testicle and epididymis was performed. Pathological findings showed a gastric signet ring cell carcinoma. Thus, double radical orchiectomy was performed and metastatic signet ring cell carcinoma of the spermatic cord and testis was diagnosed through histological examination and immunohistochemistry. Physicians should be aware that gastric carcinoma is one of the possibilities for metastasis to the seminal duct.

Palabras llave : Double spermatic cord metastases; signet ring cell carcinoma; testicular carcinoma.
