Abstract

Intravesical Bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG) therapy after transurethral resection of bladder tumor is considered the most effective treatment for prophylaxis against the recurrence of high risk nonmuscle invasive bladder cancer, and generally well tolerated and infectious complication are rare. We reported a case of granulomatous prostatitis is a patient who had undergone intravesical BCG therapy due to nonmuscle invasive bladder cancer. This patient was diagnosed by prostate biopsy because of prostate-specific antigen elevation without any other voiding symptoms and abnormal abscess pocket in transrectal ultrasonography.
