A double blind trial of bromocriptine in the treatment of 14 patients with the symptoms of benign prostatic hypertrophy is reported. 5 patients did not complete the trial mainly because of side-effects due to an overdosage of bromocriptine. In the remaining 9 patients there was symptomatic improvement in 6, with objective evidence of improvement in 3 patients on flow rate measurements. The possible modes of action of bromocriptine in this condition are discussed.
