Burghele, Bucureti Abstract Cystic lesions in midline of prostate are uncommon and considered as congenital disorders. Here we report a 27 year old male who presented with azoospermia, decreased ejaculate volume leading to infertility and for whom performing transrectal ultrasonography had a critical role in diagnosis.
Conclusions: Seminal vesicle cysts combined with ipsilateral renal agenesis are rare urological anomalies. Imaging allows a comprehensive investigation of renal and seminal vesicle anomalies.
MRI seems to better visualize cysts and differentiate them from ureteroceles, while the histopathological examination contributes to a correct diagnosis. Post navigation.
