Liposarcoma of the spermatic cord is a rare tumor, with only 60 cases reported in the literature, constituting 7% of malignant tumors of the spermatic cord. We present a new case of an unusual liposarcoma of the spermatic cord, characterized by its necrotic and myxoid variant, occurring in a 66-year-old man in good general health. The primary treatment involves the widest possible surgical excision, with adjuvant radiotherapy sometimes proving effective against local recurrences. Despite its slow progression, extended surveillance is necessary due to the high risk of late recurrence.
