Schwannoma, a rare tumor of the seminal vesicle.

Furtado AM, Carrasquinho E, Ferreira M, Afonso A, Ferrito F - Cent European J Urol (2011)

Bottom Line: We present a rare case of a schwannoma of the seminal vesicle that occurred in a 43-year-old male with symptoms of the lower urinary tract.A transvesical approach with a transtrigonal midline incision was successfully performed.The microscopic aspect was compatible with schwannoma.

ABSTRACT
We present a rare case of a schwannoma of the seminal vesicle that occurred in a 43-year-old male with symptoms of the lower urinary tract. Ultrasonography and magnetic resonance imaging documented a solid mass in the patient's left seminal vesicle. A transvesical approach with a transtrigonal midline incision was successfully performed. The microscopic aspect was compatible with schwannoma.

No MeSH data available.

Figure 0002: Magnetic resonance imaging cross section with low to intermediate intensity on T1-weighted images, showing a mass measuring 26 x 29 mm on the left seminal vesicle.

Mentions: Imaging studies were performed; initially transrectal ultrasonography (TRUS) followed by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for better characterization of the lesion. Both studies showed a solid mass, measuring 21 x 21 mm (TRUS) and 26 x 19 mm (MRI), localized on the left seminal vesicle, well defined, with a heterogeneous center and a vascularization pattern evident by captation of endovenous contrast – gadolinium (Figs. 1, 2, and 2a).
