Congenital prostatic cyst causing ejaculatory duct obstruction: management by transrectal cyst aspiration.


Journal Article

Congenital prostatic cysts are relatively uncommon and rarely symptomatic. We describe a 24-year-old man who presented with a 2-month history of anejaculation accompanied with bilateral epididymal pain. Transrectal ultrasonography of the prostate revealed a large midline prostatic cyst and bilateral dilatation of the seminal vesicles. Transrectal aspiration of the cyst resulted in return of antegrade ejaculation and resolution of epididymal pain.
