Benign prostatic hypertrophy an enlargement of prostate gland is a histological diagnosis characterized by proliferation of the cellular elements of the prostate. Chronic bladder outlet obstruction (BOO) secondary to BPH may lead to urinary retention, renal insufficiency, recurrent urinary tract infections, gross hematuria, and bladder calculi. BPH occurs in almost all men as they age. But it is usually not a
serious problem. About half of all men older than 75 have some symptoms. In a small number of cases, BPH may cause the bladder to be blocked, making it impossible or extremely hard to urinate. This problem may cause backed-up urine (urinary retention), leading to bladder infections or stones, or kidney damage. When there is renal insufficiency, it become symptomatic and may affect quality of life so now it should be treated. A case report of a 75-years- male having BPH with involvement of renal function has been presented here.
