Article Title: Primary seminal vesicle adenocarcinoma
Abstract: We describe the case of a 48-year-old male with primary seminal vesicle carcinoma. Although most malignant lesions involving the seminal vesicles are the result of secondary spread from other tumors, primary seminal vesicle carcinoma must be considered in the differential diagnosis, as the prognosis for this condition is dismal. Magnetic resonance imaging plays a crucial role in assessment, as it can exquisitely depict the anatomy of this region and define the extent of a seminal vesicle lesion. © 2011 Elsevier Inc.
