The incidence of medial prostatic cysts is unknown, since most of them are asymptomatic, and usually appear as an incidental finding during the study of other urological disease. We report an 85 years oíd man with a urinary obstruction. Rectal palpation disclosed a mass that was adjacent to the prostate. Magnetic resonance showed a cystic lesión of the right seminal vesicle. The cyst was drained, obtaining 250 mi of fluid and urinary obstruction subsided. After three months of follow up, the patient remains asymptomatic
