78%) had associated chronic prostatitis, and one out of them was granulomatous prostatitis (acidfast bacilli positive).
Modest elevation in BPH cases may be due to associated inflammation or infection leading to chronic or granulomatous prostatitis and abscess formation.
due to Mycobacterium avium complex.
However, when considering granulomatous prostatitis
, Stillwell et al.
The differential diagnosis for prostatic tumors with the appearance of DLBCL is broad, and includes high-grade carcinomas (particularly prostatic adenocarcinoma and urothelial carcinoma), small cell carcinoma, sarcoma, and nonneoplastic processes such as granulomatous prostatitis and benign chronic inflammation with follicular hyperplasia.
Granulomatous prostatitis may be primary or secondary to treatment of urothelial carcinoma with intravesicular BCG vaccine.
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.
Rare forms of granulomatous prostatitis include sarcoidosis and xanthogranulomatous prostatitis.
6] It is a rare subtype of granulomatous prostatitis, sometimes associated with hyperlipidemia.
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.
