Seminal Vesicle (SV) calculi are a rare pathology. Clinical presentation usually consists of nonspecific perineal pain and haematospermia. Adjuncts to aid diagnosis include US, MRI, and Vesiculography. This rare condition can be treated conservatively, however, surgical options are becoming more advanced with Vesiculoscopy now being the gold standard. Here, we present a case of a SV calculi treated conservatively.

Inhibitors of 5α-steroid reductase are drugs used to treat androgen-dependent conditions including prostate diseases and androgenic alopecia. Finasteride was the first on the market and is currently the most widely used inhibitor. Dutasteride was the second inhibitor to be approved and has a similar safety profile. Common adverse events of treatment consist of sexual disorders and a negative affect balance. It was described that the prolonged use of 5α-steroid reductase inhibitors in patients with alopecia can cause persistent side effects called a post-finasteride syndrome (PFS), that is not just a simple coexistence of events, but rather a definite syndrome with an iatrogenic background...

In this commentary, we highlight important findings from a notable RCT by Ng Tang Fui et al. 2016 which investigated the effects of testosterone treatment in dieting obese men. First, a myopic focus on weight loss can detract from important improvements in body composition. Second, while weight loss in obese men may increase testosterone levels, this increase is commonly not enough to result in an improvement in symptoms associated with testosterone deficiency. Third, the RCT by Ng Tang Fui et al. adds evidence to the growing number of clinical trials showing that testosterone therapy should not be restricted to men with classical hypogonadism...

OBJECTIVES: The negative impact of lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) on affected males is substantial. This study aims to assess whether a combined auriculotherapy (AT) using laser AT (LAT) and magneto-AT (MAT) is more effective than using MAT alone or placebo for managing LUTS of aging males. METHODS: A randomized controlled, double-blinded trial was conducted. Sixty-two aging males with moderate or severe LUTS symptoms were randomly allocated into groups: Group 1, placebo LAT plus placebo MAT (n = 20); Group 2, combined AT approach using LAT plus MAT (n = 20); and Group 3, placebo LAT followed by MAT (n = 22)...
