Abstract

Granulomatous Prostatitis (GnP) is a heterogenous entity classified into specific infections, non-specific infections, post surgical i.e. post-transurethral resection of prostate (TURP) and rare secondary (systemic) causes. A total of 1388 reports of prostatic biopsy and prostatic chips from TURP were reviewed from 1995 and 2007. The results which showed granulomatous prostatitis were analyzed and retrospective data collected from the patient's records. A total of 9 cases with granulomatous prostatitis were identified. There are 3 types of entities which are the non-specific (NSGnP), post-TURP and the specific type. The incidence of GnP in our center is lower than reported by Stillwell et al 2. The majority of the patients were Malays.
