Detection of a myxofibrosarcoma during surgery for inguinal hernia
Myxofibrosarcoma is a sarcoma commonly seen in the extremities of elderly patients. We present a case of a 66-year-old man planned for surgery for inguinal hernia based on a physical examination and ultrasonography. However, no inguinal hernia was found during surgery. Instead, a myxofibrosarcoma was found in the inguinal canal. Myxofibrosarcoma located in the groin has only been reported a few times in the literature. It is discussed how to differentiate between hernia and other pathology in the groin.
