HERRANZ FERNANDEZ, L.M. et al. Symptomatic localized amyloidosis of the seminal vesicles. Actas Urol Esp [online]. 2003, vol.27, n.10, pp.825-828. ISSN 0210-4806.

Amyloidosis of the seminal vesicles is a common finding in autopsies, with increased incidence in older population. It is usually asymptomatic. We report a case of symptomatic localized amyloidosis of the seminal vesicles, with hemospermia and suprapubic pain. Diagnosis was achieved through ultrasound-guided transrectal biopsy. Systemic amyloidosis must be ruled out through proper evaluation. Seminal vesicle enlargement secondary to amyloid deposit may be misdiagnosed as carcinomatous invasion.

Keywords : Amyloidosis; Seminal vesicle.
