The prostatic cysts are uncommon lesions usually detected incidentally. The incidence is reported as less than 1% most often occurs as small and asymptomatic lesions located medially in the gland; when they get a big size causes different lower urinary tract symptoms. Only 5% are symptomatic. The symptoms depend on the size and location of the lesion. Minimal access surgery (endoscopic) is recommended for its treatment. We present a case with the diagnosis of Prostatic cyst at the bladder neck treated with transurethral resection of the lesion. Histopathological investigation revealed benign prostatic cyst. At six months of follow up the patient remains free of symptoms.

Key words:Prostatic Cyst, Bladder Outlet Obstruction, Transrectal Ultrasound (TRUS), Transurethral Resection of the Prostate (TURP).
