We report a case of Malignant Melanoma of the spermatic cord in 80-year-old man presented with retained testis, hydrocele and right inguinal mass. The patient had a long history of asbestos exposure as a railways worker. The patient was submitted to inguinal radical orchiectomy. One year after surgery the patient is alive without signs of disease. Malignant Melanoma of spermatic cord is a very rare disease but this diagnosis should be suspected within patient with a history of asbestos exposure.
