Abstract


Prostatic cyst is a less common cystic condition of the urinary tract. Different types of intra-prostatic cysts have been described in the literature alongside different presentations. Midline intraprostatic cysts are mostly located posteriorly. We report a case of an incidental finding of anteriorly located midline prostatic cyst in a patient who presented with right epididymitis and briefly discuss clinical and management of this rare entity.
