Autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) is a frequently occurring inherited condition with cysts in many organs including the kidneys. However, a combination of seminal vesicle cysts, cystic obstruction of ejaculatory duct and ADPKD is rarely encountered. The following case report presents an infertile ADPKD patient who had seminal vesicle cysts and ejaculatory duct cyst, and describes the treatment by transurethral resection of the ejaculatory duct.
