Abstract

With a widely usage of prostate specific antigen (PSA) testing as a screening tool, number of prostate biopsy procedures and number of biopsy cores are increased because of the negative pathology results. As a result of this condition, incidental pathological findings including the prostate and/or the seminal vesicles were encountered. Seminal vesicle amyloidosis is one of these incidental results. In this study we aimed to present a patient with amyloidosis of the seminal vesicles which was found on transrectal ultrasound guided prostatic biopsy.
