Usually is totally asymptomatic, however it can also determine symptoms such as lower urinary tract symptoms, perineal pain, ejaculatory disorders such as painful ejaculation or hematospermia, and infertility. <br>Case report: We present a case of a 51 years old men with a 3-year history of lower urinary tract symptoms, perineal pain, obstructed defecation, recurrent urinary tract infections and infertility. CT scan showed a voluminous cystic neoformation of the left seminal vesicle, hypoplasia of the left kidney and ipsilateral ureteronephrosis. The mass was removed using laparoscopic “en block” seminal vesiculectomy with associated ipsilateral nephroureterectomy. No post-operative complications occurred. At 2-month post-operative control the patient reported an improvement of urinary and rectal symptoms.</p> 2019-03-29T11:53:10+01:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Large primary leiomyosarcoma of the seminal vesicle: A case report and literature revision 2019-04-19T17:27:34+02:00 Emanuele Corongiu Pietro Grande Valerio Olivieri Giorgio Pagliarella Flavio Forte <p>Primary Leiomyosarcoma of the seminal vesicle is a very rare condition. We report a case of a 74-year-old man with a tumour detected by rectal symptoms with pelvic pain and dysuria at ultrasonography. Computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging suggest an origin in the left seminal vesicle and did not show a clear cleavage plan with the rectum and a right hydroureteronephrosis was also present. A radical vesiculo-cystoprostatectomy with ileal conduit and bilateral pelvic lymphadenectomy was performed, a sigmoidectomy with end colostomy was performed also. Pathological examination showed a high grade (G3) leiomyosarcoma of the seminal vesicle.</p> 2019-03-29T11:27:10+01:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Partial cystectomy in young male for a urachal tumor masquerading a bladder leiomyoma 2019-04-19T17:27:35+02:00 Maurizio Sodo Lorenzo Spirito Roberto La Rocca Umberto Bracale Ciro Imbimbo <p>Leiomyoma of the bladder is a very rare disorder that accounts for 0.43% of all bladder neoplasms. Although the pathophysiology of the bladder leiomyoma is unknown, there are some theories on it. The patients can be asymptomatic; when present, clinical symptoms (lower urinary tract symptoms and\or hematuria), are associated with tumor size and location. For diagnosis, imaging plays an important role: ultrasound, computed tomography (CT) scan and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are the examinations most frequently performed. Treatment consists of surgical removal of the tumor, and the prognosis is excellent.</p> 2019-03-29T11:00:13+01:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement##
