BACKGROUND: The cysts of the male pelvic floor represent a rare clinical entity. Their origin is linked to an altered development of paramesonephric and mesonephric ducts during embryogenesis. CASE PRESENTATION: We report our experience regarding two patients presenting cysts of the ejaculatory system treated with open and mini-invasive surgery. The patients referred to our clinic with nonspecific symptoms and the diagnosis was obtained by radiological investigations. The patient treated with an open approach developed a pelvic purulent collection and a fistula of the prostatic urethra, managed with surgical drainage and prolonged bladder catheterization. On the other hand, the patient treated with laparoscopic approach did not develop any complications. No sexual or ejaculatory disorders were reported. CONCLUSIONS: Patients with congenital cysts of the pelvic floor must be adequately informed about the risks and benefits of surgery and a careful counseling is mandatory before surgery. Treatment is recommended for symptomatic patients and an endoscopic approach is associated with a high rate of recurrence. A laparoscopic approach, when possible, is desirable.

Abstract

BACKGROUND: The cysts of the male pelvic floor represent a rare clinical entity. Their origin is linked to an altered development of paramesonephric and mesonephric ducts during embryogenesis. CASE PRESENTATION: We report our experience regarding two patients presenting cysts of the ejaculatory system treated with open and mini-invasive surgery. The patients referred to our clinic with nonspecific symptoms and the diagnosis was obtained by radiological investigations. The patient treated with an open approach developed a pelvic purulent collection and a fistula of the prostatic urethra, managed with surgical drainage and prolonged bladder catheterization. On the other hand, the patient treated with laparoscopic approach did not develop any complications. No sexual or ejaculatory disorders were reported. CONCLUSIONS: Patients with congenital cysts of the pelvic floor must be adequately informed about the risks and benefits of surgery and a careful counseling is mandatory before surgery. Treatment is recommended for symptomatic patients and an endoscopic approach is associated with a high rate of recurrence. A laparoscopic approach, when possible, is desirable.
