One thought on “WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF PROSTATITIS?

  1. Arti says:

    In an effort to standardize terminology, the National Institutes of Health proposes dividing prostatitis into four main categories: Acute bacterial prostatitis (category I); chronic bacterial prostatitis (category II); chronic bacterial (nonbacterial) prostatitis (category III), which is subdivided into inflammatory (IIIA) and non-inflammatory (IIIB) prostatitis (collectively known as ‘chronic pelvic pain syndrome’); and asymptomatic inflammatory prostatitis (category IV, detected in the absence of symptoms when prostate tissue is removed for another reason; for instance, an elevated PSA). Prostatitis is inflammation of the prostate gland.
