57 Possible Causes for Seminal Vesicle Calcification

  • Urinary Tract Infection

    Abstract Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are among the most common bacterial infections acquired in the community and in hospitals. In individuals without anatomical or functional abnormalities, UTIs are generally self limiting, but have a propensity to recur. Uropathogens have specialized characteristics, such as the[…][]

  • Diabetes Mellitus

    Diabetes mellitus traditionally has been categorized as type 1 (insulin deficiency due to autoimmune destruction of islet cells) or type 2 (insulin resistance with the development of relative insulin deficiency). However, other pathophysiologic etiologies for diabetes must be considered in the evaluation of patients with[…][]

  • Paraplegia

    Abstract Ten years after placement of a spinal cord stimulator (SCS) and resolution of pain, this patient presented with progressive paraplegia, worsening thoracic radicular pain at the same dermatome level of the electrodes, and bowel and bladder incontinence. Computed tomographic myelogram confirmed thoracic[…][]

  • Seminal Vesicle Calculus

    Seminal Vesicle Calcification Seminal vesicle calcification is relatively rare and generally seen in older patients usually as an incidental findings on radiographic or ultrasound[] Back to top Seminal vesicle calculi (seminal vesicle calcification) Multiple bilateral stones/ calculi in seminal vesicles (seminal vesicular lithiasis) This middle aged male[] Keywords: Ejaculatory duct calculi, seminal vesicle calcification, seminal vesicular calculi, urinary tract stones; urolithiasis A 35-year-old fertile man presented with complaints[]

  • Cyst of the Seminal Vesicles

    AB - The world literature on seminal vesicle cysts is reviewed (21 cases; table) and an additional case is reported (male aged 30).[] The CT scan revealed only a small calcification in the right seminal vesicle.[] Urine containing the microorganism may subsequently invade the seminal vesicles. Fibrosis and necrosis of the seminal vesicles are common sequelae.[]

  • Tuberculosis of the Vas Deferens

    Hard prostatic nodules and enlarged seminal vesicles were palpable on rectal examination and calcifications in the prostate and seminal vesicles were confirmed on a pelvic[] The disease often results in calcification of the seminal vesicles, prostate and the vas deferens.[] vesicle calcification and epididymal nodules.[]

  • Chlamydia Infection

    Involvement of the seminal vesicles will gradually destroy the secretory lining and the volume of the ejaculate will gradually diminish.[] vesicle.[] It seems, vertically acquired Chlamydia infection causes more diffuse scarring with less calcification (Figure 6). The grape like clusters of beads are relatively rare.[]

  • Aspermia
