Spermatocytic seminoma (SCS) is an indolent germ cell tumor of the testis. It has an excellent prognosis and orchidectomy is generally curative. Very rarely, it can be complicated by a sarcomatous transformation which is associated with a very aggressive behavior and requires adjuvant therapy. SCS with sarcomatous component is a very rare occurrence with <20 cases described in the world literature of which eight showed rhabdomyoblastic differentiation. We report a case of SCS with rhabdomyosarcomatous differentiation in a 60-year-old male along with a short review of literature.
