AbstractDermoid cyst of the spermatic cord is an extremely
rare pathological state seen at the general surgery
and the urological clinic. We present a case of a
19-year old male who presented with a painless
left groin lump, irreducible, and no cough impulse
from childhood, both testes presented in the
scrotum and normal in size and shape.
From the history, physical examination, ultrasound
examination, we thought it was a lipoma , a
hydrocele of the spermatic cord, or irreducible
During the operation , suspicion of a dermoid cyst
of spermatic cord occurred from a sebum and hair
which discharged from the cyst during dissection
of the cyst from spermatic cord.
The final histopathological analysis established the
diagnosis of dermoid cyst of spermatic cord.
