   Case Reports Top


1. 40-year-old male, father of 3 children, presented with bilateral flank masses of 2 years' duration and episodes of painless haematuria of one week, a month ago. There was no history of urinary tract infections. Clinical evaluation was suggestive of bilateral renal masses with nodular sur­face. Urine analysis was normal. Blood biochemistry revealed diabetic state and no azotemia. Abdominal ultra­sonography showed bilateral enlarged kidneys with mul­tiple cysts. There were no cysts in liver, pancreas and spleen. Seminal vesicles on either side showed a cyst, right being 2.4x 1.4 cms and left being 2.8x 1.7 cms [Figure 1]. There was no family history suggestive of polycystic kidneys.

2. 37-year-old male, married, has no children, presented with history of hypertension since 1995. Evaluation re­vealed bilateral flank masses confirmed by ultrasonogra­phy as polycystic kidneys. Seminal vesicles showed cysts. Urinalysis and serum creatinine were within normal lim­its. There was no family history of polycystic kidneys.

3. 44-year-old male, father of 3 children, presented with history of bilateral flank masses, hypertension, progres­sive renal failure since 1993 with a recent history of sub­dural hematoma operated. Evaluation revealed polycystic kidneys both sides with a single cyst in right seminal vesi­cle (2.1 x l .1 cms) and small cysts in left seminal vesicle. Serum creatinine was 5.4mg%. There was no family his­tory of polycystic kidneys.

4. 40-year-old male, known patient of diabetes mellitus of 6 years', duration and hypertension and bilateral renal masses detected 1 year ago. Evaluation revealed bilateral polycystic kidney disease and cysts in both the seminal vesicles by ultrasonography and renal insufficiency (S. creatinine 9.5mg%).


   Comments Top


Adult polycystic kidney disease is associated with for­mation of cysts in kidneys, liver, pancreas, spleen, ovary, testis, epididymis, and thyroid. Association of seminal vesicle cysts with polycystic kidneys is reported as a rar­ity. [1],[2] It is likely that the basement membrane defect allows cyst formation in multiple organs presumably in­cluding seminal vesicles.
