Clinics in diagnostic imaging (57). Melioidotic prostatic abscess.
Singapore Med J. 2001 Jan; 42(1):41-3.SM

Abstract

A 46-year-old previously healthy man presented with urosepsis and lower urinary tract obstruction. Both urine and blood cultures grew Burkholderia pseudomallei. Intravenous Ceftazidime failed to control the infection. Prostatic abscess formation was first detected by transrectal ultrasonography, and the extent was subsequently delineated by computed tomography. The abscess was drained by transurethral resection, which served to eradicate a possible persistent focus of infection. The diagnosis and management of prostatic abscess, and Melioidosis infection, are discussed.
