Bottom Line: This prospective analysis assessed the effect of histological prostatitis on lower urinary tract functions and sexual function.Mean international index of erectile function-5 score in the prostatitis group was significantly lower than that in those without prostatitis (t=1.854, P=0.013).Histological prostatitis notably affected sexual function of patients and may serve as a major risk factor for sexual dysfunction while having little effect on lower urinary tract symptoms.

ABSTRACT
This prospective analysis assessed the effect of histological prostatitis on lower urinary tract functions and sexual function. The patients were separated into two groups as histologically observed prostatitis (Group A) and no prostatitis (Group B) according to the biopsy outcomes. International prostate symptom score, international index of erectile function-5 scores, maximal and average flow rate, and residual urine volumes were compared statistically between groups. There was no significant difference (P>0.05) in baseline age (t=0.64), body mass index value (t=0.51), prostate volume (t=0.87), prostate-specific antigen levels (t=0.43), maximal (t=0.84) and average flow rate (t=0.59), and post-void residual urine volume (t=0.71). Mean international prostate symptom score in patients with prostatitis was numerically but not significantly higher than that in those without prostatitis (t=0.794, P=0.066). Mean international index of erectile function-5 score in the prostatitis group was significantly lower than that in those without prostatitis (t=1.854, P=0.013). Histological prostatitis notably affected sexual function of patients and may serve as a major risk factor for sexual dysfunction while having little effect on lower urinary tract symptoms.

f01: H&Ex400: This is the microscopic appearance of chronic prostatitis. Numerous small dark blue lymphocytes are seen in the stroma between the glands.

Mentions: In total, 138 patients with serum PSA (ng/mL) above 4 with a normal digital rectal exam (DRE), and who were scheduled for transrectal prostate biopsy were included in the study. To evaluate lower urinary tract and sexual functions, international prostate symptom score (IPSS) and international index of erectile function-5 (IIEF-5) questionnaires were completed by patients before biopsy, respectively. Pre-biopsy uroflowmetry results (maximal flow rate [Qmax] and average flow rate [Qavg]) and post-void residual urine volume (PVR), as well as body mass index (BMI) and prostate volumes measured through transrectal ultrasonography, were recorded. Patients who received BPH or prostatitis treatment; those who were diagnosed with prostate cancer or atypia according to pathologic result; and those who had serious neurologic, cardiac, or pulmonary disorders, liver or renal failure, diabetes, or hypertension were excluded from the study. Prostatitis was diagnosed after histological observation of inflammatory cellular infiltration within the prostatic glandular tissue. Enrolled patients were divided into two groups: those with histological findings of prostatitis (Group A) (Figure-1) and those without prostatitis (Group B) (Figure-2) findings in their biopsy samples. IPSS and IIEF scores, as well as their uroflowmetry and residual urine volumes were compared statistically.
