About this book

This book provides comprehensive coverage of the current and emerging management of prostatitis, from diagnosis to therapy. It addresses all clinical aspects of the prostatitis syndrome and equips the reader with all the information needed to offer a tailored therapy. Furthermore, clinical implications of the disease are analyzed and discussed, with particular attention to andrological complications (infertility) and the possible link between prostatitis and prostate cancer. Special consideration is also given to contemporary aspects of prostatitis management relating to antibiotic stewardship and elevated PSA, bearing in mind that thoughtless treatment of prostatitis represents malpractice and sometimes even a forensic issue. The final chapter comprising questions and answers will be valuable for quick consultation in everyday clinical practice. This book will be a truly practical guide for physicians involved in the diagnostic work-up and treatment of patients suspected of having prostatitis and will also serve as a ready source of information for all physicians who occasionally see prostatitis patients.

Reviews

“This is a comprehensive overview of the current approach to prostatitis, including diagnosis and management. … This is a much-needed manual for a thorny problem facing all practitioners. The audience is clinicians who manage prostatitis patients. It also may be a worthwhile book for residents who are about to enter clinical practice but have had little exposure to the outpatient care of these patients.” (Perry R. Weiner, Doody's Book Reviews, June, 2016)
