CORDOBA-QUISHPE, Golda Alexandra; SIERRA-SANTOS, Lucía; MAQUEDA-ZAMORA, Gloria  and  GARCIA-MORALES, Antonio. Zinner syndrome: special single kidney patients. Rev Clin Med Fam [online]. 2021, vol.14, n.2, pp.100-102.  Epub July 26, 2021. ISSN 2386-8201.

Zinner syndrome is a rare urological entity characterized by unilateral cystic dilation of a seminal vesicle together with atrophy or ipsilateral renal agenesis. Patients remain asymptomatic in most cases and their diagnosis is incidental. The treatment of choice is surgical when symptoms occur or affect the patient´s fertility.

We report the case of a 13-year-old asymptomatic boy born with a single-kidney with no other personal history of interest. During a routine examination of his underlying pathology, abdominal ultrasound was performed where a probable ureteral cyst with seminal vesicle dilation compatible with probable Zinner syndrome was observed.

Keywords : Congenital Abnormalities; Seminal Vesicles; Unilateral Renal Agenesis.
