Chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome type III (CP/CPPS) is associated with pelvic pain, sexual dysfunction and irritative voiding. Sustained symptom relief has proven difficult with alpha blockers, antibiotics, and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).
Prostatitis is a common urinary tract condition but bring innumerable trouble to clinicians in treatment, as well as great financial burden to patients and the society. Bacterial prostatitis (acute bacterial prostatitis plus chronic bacterial prostatitis) accounting for approximately 20% among all prostatitis have made the urological clinics complain about the genital and urinary systems all over the world.
Emphysematous prostatitis is a rare, clinical condition characterized by gas and abscess formation in the prostate often associated with features of sepsis. We report a case of 60 year old gentleman presenting with emphysematous prostatitis complicated with secondary psoas abscess and florid sepsis following prostate biopsy.
We investigated the correlation between the presence of leucocytes in expressed prostatic secretion and the lower urinary tract symptom severity by retrospectively reviewing 699 men with lower urinary tract symptoms.
Chronic bacterial prostatitis (CBP) and chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome IIIa (CP/CPPS IIIa) are separate nosologies defined diagnostic verification criteria according to the NIH-NIDDK classification (1995).
Chronic inflammatory diseases of the prostate are one of the most common andurological nosology. This group of diseases includes heterogeneous pathology such as chronic bacterial prostatitis, chronic non-infectious prostatitis, prostate asymptomatic inflammation and chronic pelvic pain syndrome.
Corynebacterium urealyticum is a well-known opportunistic uropathogen that can occur with cystitis, pyelonephritis, and urinary sepsis. Although a wide variety of coryneform bacteria have been found from the male genital tract of prostatitis patients, only one clinical case of prostatitis caused by C.
To investigate the association of erectile dysfunction (ED), premature ejaculation (PE), and chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CP/CPPS) in men with late-onset hypogonadism (LOH).
We reviewed the data of 408 enrolled men between January 2014 and January 2019.
The pathogens responsible for chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CP/CPPS; NIH category III) are not currently known. the present study utilized high-throughput next-generation sequencing to screen for potential pathogens associated with NIH category III CP (CP III).
To investigate the characteristics of cases of NIH category I acute prostatitis developed after transrectal prostate biopsy and clarifiy the risk factors and preventive factors.
We retrospectively reviewed the medical records of 3.
