Rajul Rastogi
Saudi Journal of Kidney Diseases and Transplantation 2008, 19 (5): 799-801
Echinococcal cysts (EC) of the retroperitoneum are a rare occurrence. Such cysts involving the seminal vesicle and attaining massive size are very rare. These cysts may remain asymptomatic for long periods or may produce nonspecific symptoms. We herewith present a rare case of isolated giant EC of the seminal vesicle, which presented as acute retention of urine. To the author's knowledge, such a large EC of the seminal vesicle has not been reported previously in the medical literature.
