Granulomatous prostatitis is an uncommon inflammatory process of the prostate, which can be caused by a variety of infectious agents or be part of a systemic allergic condition. In most cases, origin is unspecific. Clinical presentation, treatment and evolution are similar to those of benign prostatic hypertrophy and, in many cases, can only be distinguished from prostate carcinoma in the histological study. The authors present in this paper the results and conclusions of a retrospective study of 22 cases of granulomatous prostatitis.
