Ultrasonography (not shown) demonstrated an hypo-anechoic lesion posterolateral to the bladder. The unenhanced CT scan of the pelvis (not shown) revealed an homogeneous, thick-walled cystic lesion in the area of the seminal vesicles. The cyst was located posterior to the bladder and cephalad to the prostate. Contrast enhanced CT scan of the pelvis shows a slight peripheral enhancement of the cyst wall
 
Contrast enhanced CT scan of the pelvis shows a slight peripheral enhancement of the cyst wall. There are no internal septations. These imaging findings are highly suggestive for seminal vesicle cyst. Surgical intervention with resection of the lesion confirmed the presumed diagnosis.
