Acute bacterial prostatitis may be caused by the following: • Ascending infection through the urethra • Refluxing urine into prostate ducts • Direct extension or lymphatic spread from the rectum • Approximately 80% are gram-negative organisms (eg, Escherichia coli, Enterobacter, Serratia, Pseudomonas, Enterococcus, and Proteus species). Mixed bacterial infections are uncommon. One case report of prostatitis caused by methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus was documented in a diabetic patient. Please go to hospital to accept periodical inspection.Released in 2010-10-06
