Abstract

Primary tumors of the seminal vesicles are rare neoplasms; there have been only 69 accepted cases. The histologic features are usually adenocarcinoma; however, there are rarely reported epithelial stromal tumors of the seminal vesicles. We report a case of a 70-year-old man with an epithelial stromal tumor of the seminal vesicle who presented without symptoms of bladder outlet obstruction. The patient underwent radical cystoprostatectomy. No signs of tumor recurrence were noted within 14 months of surgery. To our knowledge, 13 cases of epithelial stromal tumors of the seminal vesicle have been previously reported.
