Enlarged Prostatic Utricle Cyst with Incidental Finding of Renal Agenesis: A Case Report and Literature Review

Wasim Memon, Muhammad Salman Khan, Abdus Salam


Prostatic utricle cysts are rare midline intra-prostatic cysts present between the bladder and the rectum, mostly associated with other urogenital anomalies like unilateral renal agenesis and hypospadias. We present a case in which the utricle cyst was causing progressive symptoms of lower urinary tract. The cyst with associated incidental findings of unilateral (right side) renal agenesis was demonstrated on ultrasound.
