A 63-year-old male presented with lower abdominal pain and oliguria due to a large mass in the seminal vesicles. Positron emission tomography/CT (PET/CT) examination showed multiple lesions in the seminal Vesicles, parapharyngeal space, mediastinum and spermatic cord. The result of transrectal ultrasound (TRUS)-guided biopsy indicated a diffuse, large, B-cell lymphoma of the seminal vesicles. PET-CT and TRUS guided biopsy were very helpful to make the correct diagnosis of this unique case.
