Paratesticular liposarcomas are relatively common sarcomas in the paratesticular region, however, the myxoid variant; myxoid liposarcoma (MLS) is considered very rare. MLS peaks around the fourth-fifth decade. Herein, we describe a case of paratesticular MLS occurring in a 19-year-old African American male who underwent resection of a slowly growing testicular mass over a period of one and a half years that was considered initially by his primary care physician to be a benign lesion. The resection margins were positive for tumor and the patient developed local recurrence one year after the initial resection. An extremely unusual age of presentation along with the importance of margin status in tumor recurrence is highlighted.
