The distribution of BCG prostatitis: A clue for pathogenetic processes?

Prostate 2018 Nov 10;78(15):1134-1139. Epub 2018 Jul 10.

Department of Histopathology, Norfolk and Waveney Cellular Pathology Service, The Cotman Centre, Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Norwich, Norfolk, UK.

Background: We observed in cystoprostatectomy specimens that Bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) granulomatous prostatitis tended preferentially to affect the peripheral zone (PZ) and aimed to study the matter, postulating that assessment of its distribution might contribute to understanding pathogenetic processes.

Methods: Entire prostate glands from 27 men (47-83 years; mean = 69 years), who had previously received intravesical BCG therapy for non-muscle-invasive urothelial carcinoma of the bladder, were studied as whole-mount sections to determine the anatomical distribution and histopathological characteristics of BCG prostatitis.

Bacillus Calmette-Guérin therapy-associated granulomatous prostatitis mimicking prostate cancer on MRI: A case report and literature review.

Mol Clin Oncol 2015 Jan 19;3(1):249-251. Epub 2014 Sep 19.

Department of Radiology, St. Spiridon Hospital, Gr. T. Popa University of Medicine, 700111 Iasi, Romania.

Granulomatous prostatitis following bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) immunotherapy is a well-known pathological entity, developing following initiation of BCG therapy as a prophylactic measure against the recurrence of non-muscle invasive bladder cancer. In addition, there are certain imaging similarities between granulomatous prostatitis and prostate cancer, including hypoechoic area on transrectal ultrasonography and low T2 signal intensity in some prostate areas on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). This is the report of a case exhibiting a perfect imaging cross-match between granulomatous prostatitis and potential prostate cancer on repeated MRI exams, adding two supplementary aspects to the already known similarities, namely progressive restricted diffusion and increased contrast enhancement, which are specific to prostate cancer.

Department of Urology, Meram Medical School, Necmettin Erbakan University Konya, Turkey.

Unlabelled: In the present manuscript, we studied the incidence of granulomatous prostatitis in the prostatectomy specimen of the patients who underwent transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) after superficial bladder cancer treatment with intravesical Bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG) and were diagnosed with benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH). The clinical data and histopathological specimen records of 472 patients who underwent TUR-P due to BPH diagnosis, obtained over a period of 6 years in the urology department of Private Konya Hospital, Konya, Turkey, were studied retrospectively. The cases were divided into two groups as (Group I) who did not undergo any treatment and as (Group II) who underwent BCG treatment. Read More

Best practices recommendations in the application of immunohistochemistry in the prostate: report from the International Society of Urologic Pathology consensus conference.

Am J Surg Pathol 2014 Aug;38(8):e6-e19

*Departments of Pathology, Urology, and Oncology, The John Hopkins Medical Institutions, Baltimore, MD ‡Department of Pathology, Yale University School of Medicine, New Haven, CT †Department of Oncology-Pathology, Karolinska Institutet, Karolinska University Hospital, Stockholm, Sweden §Section of Pathological Anatomy, Polytechnic University of the Marche Region, School of Medicine, United Hospitals, Ancona, Italy.

The following are the International Society of Urological Pathology (ISUP) recommendations for the use of immunohistochemistry (IHC) in prostate specimens. Either high-molecular weight cytokeratin (34βE12 or CK5/6 or others) or p63 or a combination of the 2 with AMACR either in a double or triple cocktail is recommended for the workup of small foci of atypical glands suspicious for adenocarcinoma of the prostate (PCa). ERG is optional as it is present in only 40% to 50% of prostate cancers and also positive in high-grade prostatic intraepithelial neoplasia. Read More

Clin Imaging 2012 Jul-Aug;36(4):413-5. Epub 2012 Jun 8.

Department of Radiology, St James University Hospital, Leeds, LS9 7TF, United Kingdom.

We present a case of granulomatous prostatitis that presented in a rare way as an incidentally discovered focus of increased FDG activity within the prostate on PET-CT in a patient who had previously undergone intravesical bacille Calmette-Guérin treatment for bladder cancer. FDG uptake is commonly discovered in organs distant from the region of primary interest on PET-CT and so it is important to be aware of the potential causes of this. Read More

Case Rep Oncol 2012 Jan 4;5(1):80-3. Epub 2012 Feb 4.

Medical Oncology Department, Centro Hospitalar de Entre o Douro e Vouga, Portugal.

Nowadays, the most efficient form of intravesical immunotherapy for superficial transitional cell carcinoma of the urinary bladder is the instillation of bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG), proceeding from an attenuated strain of Mycobacterium bovis. In up to 40% of cases, its instillation is associated with significantly elevated prostate-specific antigen (PSA) levels. In these cases, prostate biopsy should be withheld for 3 months and PSA should be monitored. Read More
