Fungal prostatitis is an uncommon disease whose presentation is usually similar to that of benign prostatic hypertrophy and is usually diagnosed unexpectedly after surgery for relief of prostatic obstruction. To our knowledge, we report the first case of prostatic aspergillosis that developed as a complication of indwelling bladder catheterization. This unusual manifestation of invasive aspergillosis occurred in a patient at risk for invasive fungal disease because of chronic corticosteroid use and recent administration of broad-spectrum antibiotics. The previously reported cases of prostatic aspergillosis are reviewed.
