A leiomyosarcoma of the spermatic cord is an extremely rare tumor. A 73-year-old man complained of a soft, palpable mass in the right inguinal canal. Transinguinal radical orchiectomy was performed and histologic examination revealed leiomyosarcoma originating from the spermatic cord. Distant metastases were not observed by further examinations. At 7 months postoperatively, a local recurrence developed. Reoperative wide resection was performed and a negative margin was obtained. At 9 months reoperatively, there has been no recurrence or metastasis.
