Bacterial infection in prostatodynia.

Journal of Urology 1995 October
PURPOSE: We investigated a possible bacterial etiology for prostatodynia.

MATERIALS AND METHODS: We evaluated segmented urine specimens from 22 patients and 16 controls by bacteriological localization studies. Immunological studies were performed on patient and control sera.

RESULTS: Nine patients had positive cultures from prostatic secretions. When compared to controls, this novel finding was statistically significant (p < 0.025). Coagulase-negative staphylococci were the most common isolates (68%). No humoral (IgG) immune differences were found between patients and controls.

CONCLUSIONS: In a subset of prostatodynia patients bacteria may have an etiological role. Antibiotic treatment demonstrated clinical efficacy.
