Abstract

The clinical presentation and treatment modalities of seminal vesical abscesses are not well documented. The first case of a seminal vesicle cyst which formed an abscess after transrectal aspiration with subsequent formation of a fistula with the rectum is reported herein. The abscess was drained perianally, an approach that has not previously been reported. A brief comparison of the reported treatment modalities is also provided.
