Laparoscopic removal of seminal vesicle cyst
with ectopic ureteral insertion and renal remnant.
Ohgaki, Horiuchi and Oka et al studied that seminal vesicle cyst
occurs as a result of congenital obstruction of the ejaculatory duct.
Dysplastic kidney and not renal agenesis is the commonly associated anomaly in infants with seminal vesicle cyst
," BJU International, vol.
Zinner syndrome is a triad of mesonephric duct abnormality comprising of unilateral renal agenesis, ipsilateral seminal vesicle cyst
, and ejaculatory duct obstruction.
Radiological consult appeared to be a seminal vesicle cyst
3) MRI features, including multiplanar imaging capability, superior softtissue contrast, and lack of ionizing radiation, makes it a better tool to accurately define anatomic relationships when one is planning to excise a seminal vesicle cyst
or if one is considering a difficult differential diagnosis.
The differential diagnosis to be considered on imaging appearance include bladder diverticulum, urachal cyst, Mullerian duct cyst, or a Seminal vesicle cyst
Association of transverse testicular ectopia and seminal vesicle cyst
Surgical excision of the seminal vesicle cyst
is the preferred definitive management because simple aspiration is often complicated by a recurrence of the cyst and infection of the area.
Seminal vesicle cyst
or cystic malformation can be seen on imaging as retro vesicular mass of fluid characteristics depending on imaging modality that arises from seminal vesicle cephalic to the prostate gland (5).
2 cm was noted at the base of the urinary bladder, in the right seminal vesicle, consistent with a seminal vesicle cyst
The excellent soft-tissue contrast and multiplanar capability of MRI provide superb depiction of pelvic anatomy, allowing differentiation between entities that can mimic the mullerian duct cyst, such as posterior diverticuli of the bladder and urethra, utricle cyst, vas deferens cyst, and seminal vesicle cyst
