More than half of them are associated with ipsilateral renal agenesis. This disease was first described by Zinner inand since then, more than cases have been reported.
Most of the patients with this congenital disease present few symptoms until the middle-age. Case presentation: A year-old male was referred to the Urology Clinic with intermittent pain and sensibility in his lower left abdomen in the last 12 months accompanied by intermittent bowel obstruction.
The digital rectal examination could not assess the prostate due to a rectal stenosis. On computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging MRI a cystic tumor with close relations with the bladder wall and prostate, associated with left kidney agenesis prostate cyst identified.
The cystic tumor was surgically removed. The histopathological examination of the tumor revealed a multilocu- lar seminal vesicle cyst, with a muscular wall.
Ann Ital Chir ; Current methods show low accuracy for the identification of complete responders. Relevant studies were identified using bibliographic searches of Pubmed database.
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.
