JANEIRO PAIS, José M. et al. Left renal atrophy and ureteral abouchement in seminal vesicle: Laparoscopic surgical treatment. Actas Urol Esp [online]. 2009, vol.33, n.1, pp.86-89. ISSN 0210-4806.

Renal atrophy with an ectopic drainage of the ureter is an uncommon malformation. Zinder described in 1914 a cystic dilation of the seminal vesicle in association with an ipsilateral renal agenesis. Usually, these patients present lower urinary tract symptoms with perineal discomfort and fever. The most accurate diagnosis is given by the MRI, while CT and ultrasonography are less precise. We present a case of a patient who goes into hospital because of left lumbar pain and urinary sepsis data, whose CT detects an ectopic drainage of the left uereter in the seminal vesicle. He underwent a successful laparoscopic surgical treatment.

Keywords : Renal atrophy; Cystic seminal vesicle; Laparoscopy.
