[Rationale of use and effectiveness of Longidaza in patients with chronic prostatitis].

Urologiia 2018 Oct(4):64-71

Novosibirsk Tuberculosis Research Institute of Minzdrav of Russia, Novosibirsk, Russia.

Introduction: Chronic inflammation of the prostate leads to the formation of excess fibrous connective tissue, which hinders patients recovery and aggravates the symptoms.

Aim: This study aimed to confirm the correlation between inflammation and prostatic fibrosis and the abnormalities of urodynamic and microcirculation in the prostate gland in humans, and the possibility of increasing the effectiveness of treatment of patients with chronic nonbacterial prostatitis using antisclerotic therapy.

Material And Methods: The study was carried out in two stages. Read More

Urol Case Rep 2018 Mar 29;17:39-41. Epub 2017 Dec 29.

Department of Radiology in Trauma Center, Aju University School of Medicine, Suwon, South Korea.

Intravesical BCG therapy after transurethral resection of bladder tumor (TURB) is considered the most effective treatment for prophylaxis against the recurrence of high risk non-muscle invasive bladder cancer, and generally well tolerated and infectious complication are rare. We reported a case of granulomatous prostatitis is a patient who had undergone intravesical BCG therapy due to non-invasive superficial urothelial carcinoma of bladder. This patient was diagnosed by prostate biopsy because of PSA elevation without any other voiding symptoms and abnormal abscess pocket in transrectal ultrasonography. Read More

First reported case of fulminant TB with progression of infection from lungs to the genitourinary region.

Rev Inst Med Trop Sao Paulo 2017 04 13;59:e20. Epub 2017 Apr 13.

University of Belgrade, School of Medicine, Belgrade, Serbia.

Although tuberculosis (TB) is a curable disease, it continues to be one of the leading infections associated with death in the world. Extra-pulmonary TB (EPTB) occurs in approximately 10% of the total cases, presenting with lymph nodes, pleura, bone and genitourinary tract as the most common locations. Genitourinary tuberculosis, the second most common EPTB, is very difficult to diagnose unless there is a high index of suspicion. Read More

Department of Clinical Pathomorphology, Medical University of Lublin, Poland.

Intravesical immunotherapy with attenuated strains of is a widely used therapeutic option in patients with non-muscle-invasive transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder. A rare complication of intravesical therapy with the Bacillus Calmette-Guérin vaccine is granulomatous prostatitis, which due to increasing levels of prostate-specific antigen and abnormalities found in transrectal examination of the prostate may suggest concomitant prostate cancer. A case of extensive granulomatous prostatitis in a 61-year-old patient which occurred after the first course of a well-tolerated Bacillus Calmette-Guérin therapy is presented. Read More

Urologiia 2015 Sep-Oct(5):104-8

Tuberculosis remains an important medical and socio-demographic problem. Chronic inflammation of the prostate gland--of both non- specific and tuberculous etiology--reduces the quality of the ejaculate; this in the initial low level of fertility in a population can have dramatic effects. Infertility can be the first symptom prompting the patient to visit a doctor; and patient is diagnosed with tuberculosis after survey. Read More

Based on a survey of 467 men with genital tuberculosis, following conclusions were made. The presence of morphological signs of nonspecific prostatitis of toxic-allergic genesis in patients with newly diagnosed tuberculosis of the urinary and genital organs proves the possibility of primary infection of the epididymis with Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Primarily isolated epididymal tuberculosis was diagnosed in 21 (4,5%) patients. Read More

Group 1 patients (n = 33) were examined with standard 4-glass test (Mearls and Stamey), patients of subgroup 2a (n = 42) were examined with 2-glass test before finger rectal test (FRT), FRT was made in subgroup 2b (n = 45) before urine collection (2 portions), group 3 (n = 57) was examined by an original technique proposed by the authors. While performing the latter test special focus was given to urination continuity, then the secretion obtained at FRT was studied. Read More

We herein describe the clinical and TRUS findings of this case. Read More
