Prostatic abscess as a delayed complication following cryosurgery for primary prostate cancer.
Prostatic abscess is a rare and potentially life-threatening disease when left untreated. We report the first case of a man who developed a prostatic abscess as a long-term complication of cryoablation for primary prostate cancer. Timely diagnosis with non-contrast computed tomography (CT) scan, retrograde CT cystogram to ensure no bladder involvement, percutaneous drainage under CT-guidance, and antibiotic treatment sensitive to the causative organism were crucial for prompt recovery.
