Abstract: Transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) represents the gold standard of surgical therapy for the management of symptomatic bladder outlet obstruction due to the prostate. This is a major operative procedure. The objective of this study was to analyze histological findings of Trans Urethral Resection of Prostrate (TURP). The study sample included the patients with lower urinary tract symptoms and prostatomegaly who came to the genitourinary clinic. There were 444males who underwent TURP as the surgical treatment for BPH. According to the results, out of the sample 14.9 %( n=66) found to have prostate carcinoma, 83.8 % (n=372) were Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia, 61.5 %( n=273) exhibits intra prostatic inflammation, 1.6 % (n=7) were Prostatic Intraepithelial Neoplasia (PIN) and 10.4% (n=46) had squamous metaplasia. In the cancer group with a mean age of 66.3(SD=8.9) years, 16.7% coexisted with chronic prostatitis, 4.5% and 3.1% coexisted with PIN and squamous metaplasia respectively. Of the prostate cancer the Gleason grading was favorable (2-6) in 66.7% cases, 19.7% had intermediate (7) and 13.7% had unfavorable Gleason grade (8-9). As the conclusion, chronic prostatitis is more prominent than the acute prostatitis. However, chronic prostatitis is less with dysplasia and compare to total population dysplasia present is lower than the hyperplasia in our study.
