Överskrift Changes in white blood cell counts in men undergoing thrice-weekly prostatic massage, microbial diagnosis and antimicrobial therapy for genitourinary complaints.
Beskrivning OBJECTIVE: To report changes in the white blood cell (WBC) counts in expressed prostatic secretions (EPS) in men with pelvic symptoms undergoing thrice-weekly prostatic massage combined with antimicrobial therapy. PATIENTS AND METHODS: The study comprised a retrospective analysis of the records of 35 patients (mean age 45.3 years, range 28-70, SD, 12.03) with pelvic pain, pain in the lower back, obstructive urinary symptoms, irritative urinary symptoms, or sexual dysfunction, who had undergone the same diagnosis and treatment protocol in a genitourinary clinic in Manila, Philippines, from September 1992 to September 1995. RESULTS: EPS were obtained 347 times in 35 patients (median 9 times per patient, range 6-16). In 26 of the 35 (74%) patients the WBC count in the EPS was < 10 per oil-immersion field (OIF, x1000) at the first prostatic massage. In 34 of 35 (97%) patients the WBC count rose to > or = 10 as prostatic massage continued on a thrice-weekly schedule. The mean (range, SD) initial WBC count in the EPS was 8.4 (1-48, 8.43) and the maximum was 40.9 (6-60, 19.05); the difference between these values was 32.5 (3-57, 18.78; 95% confidence interval 26.1-40.1) and the difference was statistically significant (paired t-test, P < 0.001). CONCLUSIONS: The classification of patients into those with prostatodynia or prostatitis based on one EPS examination is misleading and thrice-weekly massage of the prostate is better than a single collection of EPS to obtain the most purulent sample for Gram staining and culture.
