Transrectal sonography of the prostate and seminal vesicles on patients with hemospermia.
Taiwan Yi Xue Hui Za Zhi. 1989 Mar; 88(3):232-5.TY

Abstract

Morphological change of the seminal tract of patients with hemospermia was determined by means of transrectal sonography on 38 patients. Twenty-seven (71%) had positive sonographic findings, including 20 prostatitis and/or seminal vesiculitis, three benigh prostatic hypertrophy, three prostate calculi and one seminal vesicle stone. Simultaneous bacteriologic study revealed positive cultures on 11 patients; 9 of whom (81%) had morphologic appearance on transrectal sonography suggesting inflammatory origin. Our experience indicates that transrectal sonography is capable of surveying the histopathologic change of the prostate and seminal vesicles, and is therefore effective in studying patients with organic hemospermia.
