Tubercular involvement of prostate is rare. Though the symptoms are nonspecific, haemospermia is an im­portant clinical symptom. Asymmetry of prostatic lobes or nodular fibrotic prostate on digital rectal examina­tion is an importantphvsical6nding. Altered echotexture of the prostate or hypoechoic nodules on USG leads to suspicion. AFB staining or AFB culture of seminal fluid or trucut needle biopsy of the prostate gives the definite diagnosis.
