A 33 yr old man† presented to the department of Urology, Jawaharlal Institute of Postgraduate Medical Education & Research (JIPMER), Puducherry, India, in June 2016, with primary infertility, progressively decreasing semen volume, ultimately leading to orgasmic aspermia with normal erectile function and libido. There was no history of haematuria, haematospermia, urinary tract infection, graveluria and any systemic medical illness. The urine microscopic analysis and cultures were unremarkable. Urine for acid-fast bacilli (AFB) was negative. Blood sugar, renal function tests and serum calcium levels were normal. Ultrasound evaluation of kidney and ureters were normal. Transrectal ultrasound (TRUS) [Figure 1], computed tomography (CT) [Figure 2] and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) [Figure 3] revealed calcification of the entire genital tract. The patient underwent testicular sperm extraction followed by intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) technique for the management of infertility. The patient remained distressed due to aspermia, but there was no further progression of the disease by imaging in the last follow up one year later. Symptomatic young patients with calcification limited to seminal vesicle and ejaculatory duct are amenable to surgical treatment.{Figure 1}{Figure 2}{Figure 3}
