Primary soft-tissue sarcomas of the paratesticular region are uncommon tumors comprising 1% of all adult sarcomas. Paratesticular epithelioid sarcoma (ES) is a rare subtype. Here, we report the case of a 68-years-old male with scrotal swelling who underwent high inguinal exploration and right orchidectomy. Histopathology and immunohistochemistry revealed paratesticular ES. Very few cases of paratesticular ES have been reported so far in the literature. Clinical presentation, investigations, treatment interventions, and prognosis have been discussed. As it can be confused with other benign and malignant conditions, diagnosis is often made on histopathological evaluation.
