Descripción:

OBJECTIVE: Basal cell carcinoma and

leiomyoma of the scrotum are rare. We describe three

cases of scrotal tumors and provide information regarding

this disease.

METHODS: Between 2000 and 2014, 3 patients with

scrotal tumors were diagnosed and treated at our institution.

A review was performed using the clinical records of these

patients.

RESULTS: We describe two cases of basal cell carcinoma

of the scrotum in men 72 and 71 year old, who presented

with a left scrotal lesion that was excised and the

pathological diagnosis was basal cell carcinoma. In one

patient, surgical margin was affected and a recurrent basal

cell carcinoma appeared. It was excised with enlargement

of surgical margin. We also describe a case of scrotal

leiomyoma in a 48 year old man with an elastic, firm and

nontender lesion in the right scrotum. During follow-up the

patients remain clinically asymptomatic.

CONCLUSIONS: Scrotal lesions in the elderly should be

excised and submitted for pathological examination. The

basal cell carcinoma of the scrotum appears as a plaque,

nodule or ulcer. Long-term surveillance is recommended for

these patients. Leiomyoma of the scrotum is presented as a

non-ulcerative nodule and his treatment is complete surgical

excision.
