Prostate cyst. Meniu de navigare
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.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging MRI is the best imaging modality for evaluating the prostate and accurately diagnose the prostatic carcinoma, especially in cases with aggressive and larger volume tumors. The main objectives of this article are: to review the multiparametric MRI assessment technique used in prostate pathology, to list and illustrate the most common MRI features in prostate cancer, and to present the role of the multidisciplinary team in the diagnosis and management of patients with prostate tumoral pathology.
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 prostate cyst 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 was identified.
The cystic tumor was surgically removed. The histopathological examination of the tumor revealed a multilocu- lar seminal vesicle cyst, with a muscular wall.
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.
