Transrectal ultrasonography of patients with chronic prostatitis

, : Transrectal ultrasonography of patients with chronic prostatitis. Rinsho Hinyokika 44(5): 407-410

Transrectal ultrasonography was performed on 60 patients during the treatment of chronic prostatitis. These patients were divided into four groups by evaluating the change of subjective symptoms and, ultrasonic findings characteristic to chronic prostatitis including periprostatic echo-free zones (PEZ) which was assumed due to the dilatation of Santorini's plexus. Patients in group III who were reluctant to treatment had PEZ only, and were thought to have periprostatic congestion which was responsible for lasting symptoms. Patients in Group I who had complete remissions with no subjective symptoms had no abnormal ultrasonic findings including PEZ. The patients in Group II who seemed to be psychosomatic, or neurotic had no abnormal ultrasonic images although they had the symptoms. The patients in Group IV were thought to be essentially chronic prostatitis because the patients of this group had both of the symptoms and the abnormal prostatic images.
