Case contributed by Dr Praveen Jha


Infertility. Abnormal semen analysis with low motility and poor sperm quality.

Patient Data

Age: 32
Gender: Male

Right seminal vesicle is absent (agenesis), while left seminal vesicle is hypo plastic.

Case Discussion

Unilateral agenesis of seminal vesicle as seen in this case, is a documented cause of male infertility and abnormal semen analysis. It may be associated with unilateral renal agenesis, however correlative USG (not shown) showed normal kidneys in this patient.
