    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.

    BACKGROUND: Granulomatous mastitis is a rare condition of the breast that can mimic a carcinoma. There are characteristic histological features, the most important of which is a predominantly lobular inflammatory process. It must be differentiated from known causes of granulomatous inflammation, such as tuberculosis.

    METHODS: In the present paper, the clinical and pathological features of 16 patients with granulomatous mastitis seen over a 3-year period in the University Hospital, Kuala Lumpur, are described.

    RESULTS: A clinical suspicion of malignancy was present in 10 cases. One of the patients was nulliparous. One had an associated hyperprolactinaemia, while two had systemic lupus erythromatosis. One of the patients was pregnant at the time of presentation. Four patients had localized lumps excised, five were treated conservatively because the lesion was too extensive to resect, and seven patients required drainage procedures for abscess formation.

    CONCLUSION: Awareness of this condition is important because it mimics a carcinoma, and surgery may not be the best treatment for recurrent disease.

    Xanthogranulomatous pyelonephritis is a clinico-pathological entity that is gaining awareness amongst urologists worldwide. It is an unusual chronic inflammatory lesion involving the kidney that destroys renal parenchyma and may mimic renal carcinoma. It is usually seen in middle-aged women and is associated with urinary tract infections and urinary calculi. Most reports and reviews of this condition come from the West; this study reviews the incidence and presentation of the condition in a Malaysian population.
