  Abstract:
  Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans (DFSP) is a highly recurrent low-grade soft tissue sarcoma, which is usually located on the trunk. In a review of the literature there were several reports of patients with dermatofibrosarcoma with histologically documented metastasis. In all of these, there was local recurrence and subsequent metastasis to local lymph nodes and heamatogenous spread to the lungs. We present a case of dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans first time reported in the literature with metastasis to the testis evaluated by Colour Doppler sonography.
  Key words: Dermatofibrosarcoma; Testicular Neoplasms; Neoplasm Metastasis; Ultrasonography, Doppler, Color
