BPS and CONFUSABLE DISEASES:  
literature on chronic non-bacterial prostatitis and BPS
 
The ESSIC obtained consensus on a new classification of IC and to replace the name IC by BPS (bladder pain syndrome) followed by a type indication. Click here for more details.
 

This page consists of three sections:

 
general

granulomatous prostatitis

   
  • Granulomatous prostatitis.
    Uzoh CC, Uff JS, Okeke AA. BJU Int 2006 Dec 1; [Epub ahead of print]
    • granulomatous prostatitis (GnP) accounts for about 1% of benign inflammatory conditions of the prostate
    • GnP mimics prostate cancer clinically, histologically, biochemically, ultrasonographically and radiologically
    • carcinoma was clinically suspected in up to 59% of cases of GnP and cCarcinoma coexisted in 10–14% of patients with clinically diagnosed GnP
    • in this review the dilemma of clinical management, especially when GnP is found on prostatic biopsies, is discussed
