1. Etiology of type I prostatitis
The main cause of type I prostatitis is pathogen infection, and most of them are single pathogen infections. These pathogens are mainly Escherichia coli, followed by Proteus, Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas, Klebsiella pneumoniae, etc. When the patient's body resistance is low, the prostate is susceptible to infection by highly virulent bacteria or other pathogens, which multiply rapidly and can cause retrograde or hematogenous infections through the urethra.
2. Etiology of type II prostatitis
The main cause of type II prostatitis is also pathogen infection. Urine reflux and prostate stones can also cause persistent pathogens or recurrence of infection. These pathogens are mainly Staphylococcus, followed by Corynebacterium, Enterococcus, and Escherichia coli.
3. Etiology of type III prostatitis
The etiology of type III prostatitis is complex, and its pathogenesis has not yet been identified. Many scholars believe that it is caused by the combined effects of inflammation, pathogen infection, immune abnormalities, and pelvic floor neuromuscular abnormalities, but there is still widespread controversy. It can be a disease with the same or similar clinical manifestations that is difficult to distinguish, or it can be cured, but its pathology and damage continue to act independently, or it can be caused by a single factor, or it can be multifactorial from beginning to end.
4. Etiology of type IV prostatitis
"This type of prostatitis has no clinical symptoms and is usually detected during examinations for other diseases. Currently, research on its pathogenesis is still very lacking.". Scholars believe that it may have a similar pathogenesis to type III prostatitis.
In short, we need to pay attention to personal hygiene and reduce pathogens and bacterial infections in order to better prevent prostatitis.
