Solitary fibrous tumours constitute a rare disease, which has never previously been described in the seminal vesicles. We report a case of solitary fibrous tumour of the right seminal vesicle in a 53-year-old man. The diagnosis of seminal vesicle tumour was based on transrectal ultrasonography and MRI. The histological diagnosis was established after surgical resection of this tumour. The small biopsy samples and the heterogeneous appearance of these lesions make it difficult to establish the diagnosis on biopsies alone. The surgical attitude to solitary fibrous tumour of the seminal vesicle depends on the clinical features and the course of the lesion.
