Shiby Sara Shaji*, Shone Padinjarethil George, Dr. Mohan Varghese and Dr. Chris Philip Mathew
Prostatic abscess is a rare clinical entity among uropathological conditions. The diagnosis of prostatic abscess often remains difficult because of the similarity of its clinical manifestations with those of other lower urinary tract diseases. Depending on the severity of the condition, treatment options range from conservative therapy with antibiotics to surgical management. The emergence of antibiotic-resistant organisms complicates the treatment of prostatic abscess. In this case report, we are going to emphasise the management of prostatic abscesses caused by multidrug-resistant (MDR) Klebsiella pneumoniae.
Keywords: Prostatic abscess, Klebsiella pneumonia, Multi Drug Resistance.
