Lithiasis in prostate utricle: a case of infertility

Lísias Nogueira Castilho, José Francisco Salles Chagas, Carlos Augusto Bastos Varzim, Thiago Mussato Carcinoni, Tiago Moura Rodrigues


Prostatic utricle cyst is a structure remaining from the Müllerian duct, resulting from the incomplete regression of these structures during the development of the embryo. The incidence varies from 1 to 5% in the general population and up to 20% of the patients complain of hematospermia, which could be associated with a urinary infection, pain and urinary urge incontinence, palpable abdominal mass and epididymitis. The diagnosis is based on physical examination and transrectal ultrasonography, and complemented with a cystourethrography. Magnetic resonance imaging may also be used. Most of the time treatment consists of endourologic procedures, with marsupialization of the cyst.
Indexing terms: Azoospermia. Müllerian duct. Infertility. Lithiasis. Health and utricle.
