Malignant mesothelioma is an adenomatoid tumor of non-germ line cells, a very rare testicular tumor, only about 100 cases have been reported in the literature and most patients with this condition are over 50 years. Over 50% had a history of asbestos exposure. All patients with suspected testicular malignancy should get a radical orchiectomy to prevent recurrences. We report a clinic case of a male patient of 69 years who consulted with a disease of 6 months duration with increased volume of left scrotum and serohematic fluid drainage through a fístula. The patient received surgical treatment with a radical orchiectomy and left hemiescrotectomy, histopathological examination revealed a mixed testicular malignant mesothelioma.
