Agenesis of seminal vesicles in infertile males: ultrasonic diagnosis.
Eur Urol. 1991; 20(2):129-32.EU

Abstract

We present the incidence of seminal vesicle agenesis and its association with deferens ductus agenesis in 141 males presenting with infertility. Transrectal ultrasonography was performed in every patient. Ten presented seminal vesicle agenesis (8 unilateral and 2 bilateral). Three had absence of the vas deferens on physical examination (3 of 7 with unilateral seminal vesicle agenesis and 1 of 2 with bilateral). Computed tomography confirmed the ultrasound findings. We emphasize the importance of the anomalies as a cause of infertility and the association with other genitourinary anomalies. Moreover, we state the necessity of transrectal ultrasound in the diagnosis.
