Abstract

A case of ieiomyosarcoma of the seminal vesicle is described in a 68-year-old man. Digital rectal examination and pelvic computed tomography (CT) scan disclosed a large pelvic mass in the region of the prostate, whereas magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) suggested that the mass arose from the right seminal vesicle. Biopsy of the mass revealed a high-grade malignancy, thus a radical cystoprostatectomy was performed. Pathologic examination revealed a leiomyosarcoma arising from the right seminal vesicle. The patient is well and free of recurrent disease 13 months following surgery.
