Rights and Permissions

An elderly male presented with painful swelling in the right side of scrotum. He was treated with antibiotics for epididymoorchitis without any response. Ultrasound examination revealed a hypoechoic vascular mass in the tail of the epididymis. Fine needle aspirate cytology was inconclusive. Excision of the mass was done and biopsy revealed primary extranodal marginal zone lymphoma arising from mucosa associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) of epididymis. Marginal zone lymphoma arising from the MALT of epididymis is very rare. Lymphoma should be considered as a differential diagnosis of any epididymal swelling unresponsive to conservative treatment. We report a rare case of primary extranodal marginal lymphoma of MALT arising from epididymis.
