  • Abstract The author presents an unusual case of general sepsis of the organism caused by periurethral abscess in a 38 years old man. The aetiology is discussed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Urethral Disease

Treatment

  • A case with a primary diagnosis of periurethral abscess with N. gonorrhoeae infection is reported--successful treatment included transurethral incision and antibiotic therapy. 2004 S. Karger AG, Basel.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The response to initial treatment was good, but the abscesses ruptured in two patients, one of whom developed a urinary fistula. One patient required treatment with an alternative antimicrobial regimen.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The text has been reorganized into separate sections—one on presenting symptoms and diagnosis and one on medical and surgical treatment of diseases.[books.google.com]

Prognosis

  • Prognosis As a consequence of delayed diagnosis, women may encounter several complications, such as recurrent urinary tract infections, stone formation, and more rarely, malignancy. [1] Although pathology is benign 97% of the time a high degree of suspicion[emedicine.medscape.com]
  • CCA of the male urethra is an extremely rare entity with only six cases in the world English literature having an extremely poor prognosis and uncertain histogenesis.[ijpmonline.org]
  • Prognosis Untreated chlamydia will either persist or spontaneously resolve. One study reported a spontaneous resolution rate of 22% [ 18 ] .[patient.info]
  • While they heal faster, there may be a higher rate of recurrence than those left open. [28] Prognosis [ edit ] Even without treatment, skin abscesses rarely result in death, as they will naturally break through the skin. [3] Epidemiology [ edit ] Skin[en.wikipedia.org]
