Enterocutaneous fistulas (ECFs) can be one of the complications found after surgical intervention for rectal cancer. Interventional modalities consisting of surgical, endoscopic, and radiological methods are often implemented to treat postoperative symptomatic complications. We present the case of 61-year-old Caucasian man who presented to us with a recent diagnosis of rectal cancer that had invaded the levators as well as anteriorly into the prostate, and who underwent low anterior resection with a diverting loop ileostomy...

Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) commonly causes infection of the skin, soft tissue, bones and heart. MRSA is a rarely reported organism of prostatic abscess (PA). We present a case of an intravenous drug user who presented with dyspareunia, dysuria and dyschezia after a traumatic injury to the rectum. He was diagnosed with PA, which was treated with transurethral resection of the prostate drainage and intravenous antibiotics. MRSA PA carries a low case fatality rate on early diagnosis and treatment with proper antibiotics with or without drainage of the abscess...

Brucellosis is a zoonotic infectious disease that is known endemic infection in Saudi Arabia. Yet, this infection has not been reported as evident cause of prostatic abscess. we present a new case of prostatic abscess caused by brucella organism proven using pus culture and serology. These organisms should be suspected in patients presenting with clinical picture of prostatic abscess especially in endemic areas.

A 63-year-old man with bloody stools, anal incompetence, and feeling of fatigue was diagnosed as having a RAS mutanttype rectal cancer with abscess and rectovesical fistula. Computed tomography revealed that the tumor had invaded the seminal vesicle, prostate, and bladder and formed an abscess. In addition, his general condition was poor. Thus, we evaluated the lesion as unresectable. His nutritional status improved, and the infection was controlled after colostomy. Then, we performed chemotherapy with 5-fluorouracil, Leucovorin, and oxaliplatin(FOLFOX)plus bevacizumab...

A staghorn calculus is a calculus accommodating the majority of a renal calyx extending into the renal pelvis. A conservative approach to its treatment may lead to high morbidity and mortality rates. Such morbidity usually manifests with renal failure, obstructed upper urinary tractand/or life-threatening sepsis. Prostatic abscesses have never been associated with staghorn calculi in the literature. We report a case of a 70-year-old man who presented with sepsis, which was found to originate from a complex prostatic abscess...

The causative organism of melioidosis is Burkholderia pseudomallei, a Gram-negative bacterium endemic to Southeast Asia and Northern Australia. The clinical presentation varies, ranging from asymptomatic cases to rapidly progressive septicaemia and shock. Abscesses may be found in any internal organ. We describe an infrequent presentation of melioidosis with various symptoms, including haematuria and rectal pain. Perirectal and prostatic abscesses were found, the causative organism was identified and relevant treatment administered, resulting in a full recovery...

Burkholderia pseudomallei is recognized to cause severe and fatal infections. Most of the infections caused by this facultative intracellular gram-negative bacterium are pneumonia, soft tissue, genito-urinary and central nervous system infection. We report an unusual case of primary prostatic abscess complicated by perianal abscess caused by Burkholderia pseudomallei . Melioidosis related anorectal infections have not been previously reported in the literature.

PURPOSE: Hydrogel spacers have been suggested to limit rectal radiation dose with improvements in clinical outcomes in patients undergoing external beam radiation treatment for prostate cancer. No studies to date have assessed the utility and dosimetric effect of SpaceOAR (Augmenix, Inc, Waltham, MA), the only Food and Drug Administration-approved hydrogel rectal spacer, for high-dose-rate (HDR) brachytherapy. METHODS: Eighteen consecutive patients scheduled for HDR brachytherapy in the treatment of prostate cancer underwent transperineal ultrasound-guided placement of 10 cc of SpaceOAR hydrogel following catheter implantation...

Prostatic involvement is common in men with melioidosis. Indeed, some clinicians recommend radiological screening of all male patients as an undrained prostatic abscess may result in relapse of this potentially fatal disease. However, sophisticated medical imaging is frequently unavailable in the remote and resource-poor locations where patients are managed. In this retrospective study from Queensland, Australia, 22/144 (15%) men with melioidosis had a radiologically confirmed prostatic abscess. The absence of urinary symptoms had a negative predictive value (NPV) (95% confidence interval [CI]) for prostatic abscess of 96% (90-99%), whereas a urinary leukocyte count of < 50 × 106 /L had an NPV (95% CI) of 100% (94-100%)...

REVIEW
Anne Lenore Ackerman, Pooja S Parameshwar, Jennifer T Anger
We reviewed the pathogenesis, clinical presentation, treatment options and outcomes of prostatic abscess in the post-antibiotic era, focusing on how patient risk factors and the emergence of multidrug-resistant organisms influence management of the condition. A MEDLINE search for "prostate abscess" or "prostatic abscess" was carried out. Prostate abscess is no longer considered a consequence of untreated urinary infection; now, men with prostatic abscess are typically debilitated or immunologically compromised, with >50% of patients having diabetes...

Involvement of the prostate by tuberculosis (TB) occurs rarely and tuberculosis prostate abscess is an even rarer occurrence. It has been reported in immunocompromised patients, mainly human immunodeficiency virus seropositive individuals. We are reporting a case of tuberculosis prostatic abscess in an immunocompetent patient with relapse of TB.

Postoperative septic complications of hemorrhoids surgical interventions are rare, but very serious with high mortality rate. Early diagnosis and prompt therapy are essential to save patient's life. There are a good number of articles and case reports about these septic complications. We are presenting a case report of a prostatic abscess caused by extended spectrum beta lactamase (ESBL) producing Klebsiella pneumoniae after hemorrhoidopexy. Our patient was a healthy middle aged Saudi male who has no significant medical history apart from morbid obesity and recurrent urinary tract infections...
