Rare forms of granulomatous prostatitis include sarcoidosis and xanthogranulomatous prostatitis.
6] It is a rare subtype of granulomatous prostatitis, sometimes associated with hyperlipidemia.
8] In 20% of cases, granulomatous prostatitis presents with a triad of sudden-onset high fever, symptoms of prostatitis and a nodular painless firm with a prostate enlargement, palpable on DRE.
Serum prostate-specific antigen levels in non-specific granulomatous prostatitis.
A biopsy was performed due to prostate spesific antigen (PSA) and digital rectal examination abnormalities and indicated granulomatous prostatitis.
Key words: BCG treatment; bladder cancer treatment: Granulomatous prostatitis.
Incidence of granulomatous prostatitis and acid-fast bacilli after intravesical BCG therapy.
Non-specific granulomatous prostatitis diagnosed with ultrasonography-guided transrectal biopsy.
7) The most common form of granulomatous prostatitis
consists of "nonspecific granulomatous prostatitis
" and is characterized by granulomatous inflammation arranged concentrically around prostatic ducts or glands (Figure 1), and can be accompanied by giant cells and a mixture of inflammatory cells including eosinophils.
The problem with granulomatous prostatitis is that the sheets of epithelioid (or foamy) macrophages, as well as scattered epithelial cells from remnants of ruptured prostatic ducts and acini, may all be confused with high-grade (Gleason grade 5) adenocarcinoma.
