    Context and Aim: Prostatic abscess is an unusual condition. The prevalence of prostatic abscess is about 0.5% of all prostatic diseases. The purpose of the study is to present and discuss the role of transrectal ultrasound (TRUS) in the management of prostatic abscess. Settings and Design:...

    Background: Prostatic abscesses are an uncommon disease usually caused by enterobacteria. They mostly occur in immunodeficient patients. It is thus extremely rare to have a Staphylococcal prostatic abscess in a young immunocompetent patient. Case presentation: A 20-year-old patient was treated...
