Pathology and Pathogenesy


As university professor I could now describe all the anatomical and pathological pictures which are present during states of acute and/or chronic inflammation of the urethra and prostate but in so doing I would simply be repeating what has already been said by my predecessors who have not been able, in fact, to cure prostatitis. Those of you who wish to study the pathology as described in standard texts might like to consult, for example, Campbell’s Urology, which is the urologist’s Bible.

Those of you who want new insights into the problem can follow me!

To start with, let’s set aside USA National Institute of Health classification of prostatitis (NIH-PSS) which divides the disease into acute and chronic, bacterial and non-bacterial forms and adds prostatodynia to this last group, to cover a multitude of disturbances (e.g. painful male urethral disease) in patients with few (<10 per field) inflammatory cells and typical prostate pain who do not fit into any of the other categories.
Let’s go back to the complex of organs that I described in part 3 and let’s consider them as a single bladder neck-urethral-prostatic vesical organ (a term which you will not find in anytextbook of anatomy) so that we can identify weak areas and consequently provide the right remedy.
