A 30-year-old male with no previous history of neoplastic disease presented with a 5 cm large testicular tumor. Routine histopathological examination and immunohistochemical investigation showed a classical seminoma with a contiguous 8 mm large nodule. The nodule was separated from the tunica albuginea by tubuli semi-niferi showing intratesticular germ cell neoplasi not otherwise specified (NOS). The nodule was composed of spindle cells with low-grade nuclear atypia, nuclear and cytoplasmic S100 protein immunoreactivity in 15% of the cells and a proliferative activity of up to 20%. No other germ cell tumor components were found. To the best of our knowledge, we herein present the first tumor of a pure classical seminoma with an associated low-grade sarcomatous component.
