    Suppurrative prostatitis with symptomatic benign prostatic hyperplasia: A case report and revi1ew of literature

    Paul E Ngwu*, Cornelius C Chukwuegbo and George O Achor

    Introduction: The diagnosis of suppurrative prostatitis is rare affecting men mostly in their 5th or 6th decades. Suppurative prostatitis can co-exist with symptomatic benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) making diagnosis and treatment much more challenging.

    Observation: We report a case of a 75 years old man that presented initially with lower urinary tract symptoms, was placed on alpha adrenergic blockers and lost to follow up for 4 years before presenting with acute urinary retention. He subsequently had open prostatectomy with a histological diagnosis of suppurrative prostatitis and benign prostatic hyperplasia.
