During the years, there have been no more than a few reports (with ours being so far the sixth) of prostatic cysts prolapsing into the bladder and thus causing urinary obstruction. Most of those cystic formations are generally asymptomatic and are found during random controls. In our case, the cyst was located in the anterior midline of the prostate in a 36-years-old patient presenting at the E. R with severe suprapubic pain and urinary retention after 3 months of constantly deteriorating lower urinary tract symptoms. Transabdominal ultrasonography and magnetic resonance imaging revealed a projecting prostatic cyst that like a valve was blocking the bladder neck at 12 o'clock position. It was successfully removed by transurethral resection leaving the patient free of symptoms.
