Chronic Prostatitis, Rat
Chronic prostatitits typically is encountered in randomly selected microscopic sections of the prostate, and is not commonly recognized at gross necropsy examination. Those few cases recognized by gross observation consist of enlargement or atrophy, which may be symmetrical or asymmetrical, with slight discoloration of the affected gland. Incision of severely inflamed glands may reveal frank suppuration. The ventral, lateral, and dorsal prostates are commonly involved, and lesions are rarely seen in the anterior prostate (coagulating gland)(see p.272, this volume).
