Prostate tuberculosis is a very rare condition and only few isolated cases have been reported in the literature in immunocompetent individuals.
We, report a case of a 58-year-old man, who presented to us with features of lower urinary tract symptoms. On evaluation, prostatomegaly was found which was treated conservatively. Due to failed conservative treatment, transuretheral resection of prostate was performed. Histopathological examination along with Polymerase chain reaction and Ziehl-Neelsen staining confirmed tubercular prostatitis. He received nine months course of antitubercular treatment with good response.
