    Granulomatous Prostatitis (GnP) is a heterogenous entity classified into specific infections, non-specific infections, post surgical i.e. post-transurethral resection of prostate (TURP) and rare secondary (systemic) causes. A total of 1388 reports of prostatic biopsy and prostatic chips from TURP were reviewed from 1995 and 2007. The results which showed granulomatous prostatitis were analyzed and retrospective data collected from the patient's records. A total of 9 cases with granulomatous prostatitis were identified. There are 3 types of entities which are the non-specific (NSGnP), post-TURP and the specific type. The incidence of GnP in our center is lower than reported by Stillwell et al. The majority of the patients were Malays.

    [Purpose] Our objective was to assess the effect of salat and mimicking salat movements and postures on subjects with erectile dysfunction. [Methods] Ten volunteers were recruited in this study. Subjects who were Muslims (Group I) were asked to perform their daily salat and a new intervention of an additional 12 movement cycles of salat for three sessions a week. Non-Muslim subjects (Group II) were taught to mimic salat movements, and were asked to perform a total of 12 movement cycles without reading the recitation for three sessions a week. An International Index for Erectile Function 5 (IIEF-5) questionnaire was given to the subjects before and after the intervention of performing salat or mimicking salat movements and postures. A nocturnal electrobioimpedance volume assessment (NEVA) device was used to measure the nocturnal penile tumescence (NPT) parameters over two consecutive nights. A nonparametric test was conducted to find the significant NPT parameters. [Results] The results showed that all measured parameters improved significantly, with the largest change observed in the maximum percent volumetric change over the baseline (from 138 to 222%). [Conclusion] This preliminary study suggests that the alternative approach of salat and mimicking salat movements and postures, may have beneficial effects for ED patients.

    Malignant tumours of the scrotum are very rare. Several type of occupations have been identified as high risk for the development of SCC of scrotum e.g paraffin and shale oil workers (1), textile workers (2) etc. We report a rare case of SCC of scrotum. Search of our records in the Urology and Pathology departments of our Centre showed that this is the only case of SCC of the scrotum in the last 10 years.

    Male factor infertility which accounts for 30-50% of infertility is a major problem faced by married couples. Congenital absence of the vas deferens, though uncommon, remains the most common abnormality seen in extratesticular ductal and ejaculatory system, accounting for 1-2% of male infertility. It may be unilateral or bilateral. Association with renal abnormality has also been reported with congenital absence of vas deferens (1). The patients are asymptomatic and the congenital abnormality is usually detected when investigation for infertility is carried out. We present a case of an unusual presentation of congenital bilateral absence of vas deferens (CBAVD).

    Rhabdomyosarcoma of the genitourinary tract is rare and predominantly affects paediatric patients. We present an unusual case of such a lesion in an adult with extensive occupation of the bladder cavity by the lesion, resulting in bilateral ureteric obstruction, without evidence of ureteric outlet invasion. We outline the unusual CT and macroscopic appearance of this lesion. We also discuss the literature data and management strategies of rhabdomyosarcoma of the genitourinary tract.
