Abstract Hematospermia is usually caused by nonspecific inflammation of the prostate and seminal vesicles. Transrectal ultrasound (TRUS) is a safe and inexpensive modality for evaluating patients with hematospermia. The aim of this study is to describe the findings of TRUS and its contribution to patients' management. A total of 115 consecutive patients presented with hematospermia and evaluated with TRUS between 2006 and 2012. All patients exhibited an abnormality in the TRUS examination. A 12-core TRUS-guided biopsy of the prostate was taken from 10 patients, but none of these samples were positive for tumor. In the vast majority of cases, a benign cause can be identified using TRUS. These causes usually do not require treatment. Copyright © 2013 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved. This article was published in Clin Imaging and referenced in Advancements in Genetic Engineering
