We present an elderly man who was diagnosed to have malignant mesothelioma of tunica vaginalis of testis. Because of the rarity of the tumour, the diagnosis was delayed and appropriate steps at early stages were not taken. This resulted in local recurrence. Inspite of radical surgery the tumour recurred. Response to chemotherapy was poor. Only 37 cases have reported till date. Radical surgery seems to be the treatment of choice. Because of its rarity, the information on the role of radiotherapy and chemotherapy is scanty.
