RODRIGUEZ GARCIA, Nuria et al. Hematospermia and mullerian duct cyst. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2005, vol.58, n.10, pp.1061-1064. ISSN 0004-0614.

OBJECTIVES: To report one case of utriculum cyst treated endoscopically. METHODS: We describe the case of a mid-age male patient consulting for long-term monosymptomatic hemospermia. Rectal digital examination revealed a non suspicious adenomatous prostate. Transrectal ultrasound showed a complicated utriculum cyst. RESULTS: Endoscopical marsupialization of the cyst was performed with complete remission of hemospermia. CONCLUSIONS: Transrectal ultrasound should be performed in all patients presenting with long-term hemospermia. Endoscopical marsupialization of the mullerian duct cyst is indicated in symptomatic patients or those with complex cysts on ultrasound, offering a high cure/improvement rate in this group of patients without secondary effects.

Keywords : Hemospermia; Mullerian duct; Utriculum cyst.
