Robotic-assisted laparoscopic removal of dermoid cyst mimicking an enlarged cystic mass in the seminal vesicle. IJU case reports Lascano, D., Hsieh, K., Kedia, B., Higgins, J. P., Chung, B. I. 2022; 5 (5): 346-349


Introduction: Isolated seminal vesicle cysts not associated with Zinner syndrome is a rare disorder that can present initially with urinary obstructive symptoms or nonspecific groin pain.Case description: We present the uncommon case of a dermoid cyst mimicking a seminal vesicle cyst treated with robotic-assisted laparoscopic seminal vesiculectomy.Conclusion: For dermoid cysts, surgical excision is the gold standard of treatment with a high cure rate and little risk of regrowth if spillage is avoided and full resection is completed. Robotic-assisted laparoscopic surgery is a viable management option with good visualization of the anatomy.
