A 58-year-old male presented with high fever and perineal pain. Digital rectal examination revealed fluctuation of the prostate and CT showed multiple cystic lesions in the enlarged prostate. Based on the diagnosis of prostatic abscess, we treated him with antibiotic administration and placement of suprapubic cystostomy catether. After those procedures, the abscess diminished in size, and his general condition ameliorated. We experienced a rather rare case of large prostatic abscess successfully treated without surgical drainage.
