OBJECTIVE The aim of the study was to evaluate the secretory dysfunction of the male accessory glands in men with inflammatory versus non-inflammatory chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CPPS). METHODS One hundred and twelve consecutive patients symptomatic for chronic pelvic pain were included into the study. All underwent a combined granulocyte analysis in expressed prostatic secretions (EPS) and a four-glass-test followed by ejaculate analysis. Patients were subgrouped according to elevated… CONTINUE READING
