Testicular lymphoma is a rare disease entity that accounts for only 1%-9% of all testicular neoplasms and 1% of all non-Hodgkin lymphomas. Although it is the most common testicular tumor in men over the age 60, testicular lymphoma is rarely seen in younger males (<30 years).Testicular lymphoma has a marked tendency to metastasize, particulary to extranodal sites, including the skin , central nervous system (CNS), Waldeyer ring, contralateral testis and lung. Most of primary testicular lymphomas display a B-cell immunophenotype , being diffuse large B-cell lymphoma(DLBCL) in 80-90% of cases. Other histological subtypes, mostly Burkitt’s and Burkitt’s-like types ,have been reported in 10-20% of cases. Rarely T-cell of follicular lymphomas involving the testes have been reported. Standard treatment for patient with primary testicular lymohoma has not been yet estabilished.
