ABSTRACT
Introduction: Seminal vesicle cysts are rarely seen. They are usually asymptomatic but symptomatic when they all of large size. Ectopic ureteral opening is less common with seminal vesicle. Treatment of seminal vesicle cyst in symptometic patients is surgery. We describe a patient with a seminal vesicle cyst and associated renal agenesis.
Case Report: A 27-year-old male presented to our clinic with lower urinary system complaints. Pelvic magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan revealed a massive cyst in the right seminal vesicle. Transrectal ultrasound, cystoscopy and ultrasound-guided cyst puncture were performed for differential diagnosis. The results were evaluated and the operation was performed. During the operation it was observed that uretar and rudimentary kidney were opening the cyst. Nephroureterectomy and cyst excision was done.
Conclusion: Renal agenesis with seminal vesicle cyst is a rare disease. A few case reports are presented in literature but no algorithm is available. Pelvic MRI scan, cystoscopy and transrectal ultrasound should be performed for differential diagnosis in patients with seminal vesicle cysts. Surgical treatment is needed in symptomatic patients.

Keywords: Ectopic ureter, Seminal vesicle cyst, Renal dysplasia, Transrectal ultrasound (TRUSG)
