Résumé

L’hémangiome caverneux du cordon spermatique est une tumeur vasculaire bénigne très rare. Seuls quelques cas ont été rapportés dans la littérature. Le diagnostic clinique est plutôt difficile, et il est, en général, de découverte anatomopathologique. Ses principales particularités sont la gravité de ses complications et la possibilité d’involution spontanée. Nous rapportons le cas d’un patient de 26 ans, traité pour tuberculose ganglionnaire il y a deux ans, et, chez qui, l’échographie a orienté vers ce diagnostic. Le traitement consistait en une tumorectomie. La discussion concerne la définition, l’étiopathogénie, les aspects histologiques, cliniques, les moyens diagnostiques, les complications et le traitement.

Abstract

Spermatic cord cavernous hemangioma is a rare benign vascular tumor. Only a few cases have been previously reported. Clinical diagnosis is rather difficult, and it is generally by pathological discovery. The principal characteristics are the severity of the complications and the possibility of spontaneous involution. We report the case of a 26-year-old man who was treated for lymph node tuberculosis two years ago. A sonographic study led to the diagnosis, and treatment consisted of a tumorectomy. The discussion concerns the definition, diagnosis procedures, complications and treatment.
