1/12. cysts of the prostrate.

    2 rare cases of prostatic cysts are described. The first was considered to be a congenital cyst originating in the Mullerian system and the second a large retention cyst of the prostate. The problems arising from the present classification of prostatic cysts are briefly noted.

2/12. Suprapubic transvesical puncture and sclerotization of a mullerian duct cyst under US guidance.

    Abdominal, ultrasonography (US) performed on a middle-aged patient who presented with partial urinary retention, long lasting lower back pain, and abdominal pain revealed a cyst in the midline of the prostate. The cyst, which protruded into the bladder, was punctured under US guidance transvesically and sclerotized with 1% Aethoxysklerol. Following this procedure, the patient became steadily free of his complaints and is voiding without retention.

3/12. Systemic aspergillosis with predominant genitourinary manifestations in an immunocompetent man: what we can learn from a disastrous follow-up.

    Prostatic aspergillosis is a rare finding with only ten cases reported previously. We report the first case of systemic aspergillosis predominantly presenting with prostatic involvement and, clinically, with urinary retention in an immunocompetent host. Routine transurethral resection was performed due to benign prostatic hyperplasia with subvesical obstruction. Concomitant prostatic aspergillosis was diagnosed without signs of systemic infection. In the clinical follow-up systemic aspergillosis became rapidly progressive requiring complex surgical interventions and long-term antifungal therapy. The current literature is reviewed, and diagnostic and management options are discussed.

4/12. Endoscopic treatment of multiple prostatic calculi causing urinary retention.

    Although prostatic calculi are relatively common, the etiology of these stones is not clear. We report a case with multiple prostatic calculi causing urinary obstruction and a concomitant bladder stone. We treated these stones endoscopically. We found a lot of different sized stones endoscopically, some protruding into the urethra, some filling different cavities on the prostate. So these cavities suggest prostatic calculi may occur related to intraprostatic reflux in the congenital or acquired diverticulum of the prostatic tissue. In addition, the stone composition of the bladder and prostatic stones was the same. All of these results show that the origin of bladder and prostatic stones can be the same. This case also supports a theory of intraprostatic reflux and urine stasis.

5/12. Diagnostic value of MRI in a pelvic mass of prostatic origin.

    We report on the case of a 55-year-old male with acute urinary retention, caused by a large pelvic mass. Contrast enhanced computed tomography showed a vascularized prostatic mass with calcifications. To rule out potential bladder and rectum infiltration and to optimize imaging prior to surgical exploration, an MRI examination including MR angiography and spectroscopy was performed. Clinical findings including intraoperative results are presented in this report in detail and correlated to the results of the state of the art magnetic resonance imaging.

6/12. Prostatic involvement in Wegener's granulomatosis.

    Wegener's granulomatosis involving the prostate gland is unusual. We report 3 cases of this condition in which typical necrotizing granulomas with vasculitis were seen histologically. These lesions may cause gross hematuria or obstructive voiding, including urinary retention. Management includes prostatectomy when the symptoms are severe but an initial trial of aggressive medical therapy may be successful. Treatment requires a knowledge of the natural history of Wegener's granulomatosis and its usual response to medical therapy.

7/12. aspergillosis of prostate.

    We report a rare case of primary prostatic aspergillosis in a well-controlled diabetic man who presented to our clinic in acute urinary retention. His management and the literature are reviewed.

8/12. Prostatic cyst: report of 2 cases.

    Prostatic cysts are rarely reported in the literature, however, their existence is not so rare as one may think. Two cases of prostatic cyst were found among 400 patients being examined by transrectal ultrasonography. The clinical manifestations of a cyst ranged from totally asymptomatic to urinary retention depending on cyst size and location. The diagnosis was attained by rectal examination, panendoscopy, cystourethrography and transrectal ultrasonography. The first case received an open prostatectomy and the second case was managed by puncture of a cyst.

9/12. Prostatic abscess: imaging with transrectal ultrasound. Case report.

    A 50-year-old man presented with acute urinary retention and urosepsis. Transrectal ultrasonography (TUS) of the prostate demonstrated an abscess. Transperineal US-guided aspiration of pus, urinary bladder catheterization together with systemically administered antibiotics led to an uneventful recovery. TUS was a rapid diagnostic aid for differentiation between prostatitis and prostatic abscess; the appearance of an hypoechoic process within the prostate suggests an abscess.

10/12. blastomycosis presenting with prostatic involvement: report of 2 cases and review of the literature.

    We report on 2 patients who presented with prostatic involvement as the first prominent clinical manifestation of systemic blastomycosis. The clinical symptoms of both patients began with dysuria and urinary retention. In 1 patient skin lesions developed 4 weeks later and the initial chest x-ray findings were positive. The other patient became aware of skin lesions concurrently with the urinary symptoms and had negative chest x-ray findings. Successful treatment consisted of amphotericin b in 1 case and ketoconazole in the other case. A review of the literature revealed 8 well documented cases of blastomycosis with the initial presenting symptom of prostatic involvement. A summary of the previously reported cases is presented and the importance of recognition of skin lesions in such patients is stressed.
