Computed tomography (CT) has been shown to be of great value in the assessment of the urinary tract. However, this modality has been primarily used in the evaluation of renal masses and the staging of urinary tract carcinomas. It may also be useful in less common abnormalities, such as mesonephric duct anomalies including congenital seminal vesicle cysts. These lesions are associated with renal agenesis and may produce urinary tract symptoms, or be discovered incidentally. We present a case of a congenital vesicle cyst associated with ipsilateral renal agenesis with characteristic CT findings allowing for a specific diagnosis.
