Tuberculosis of the male sexual system

The organs of the reproductive system of male testes, epididymis, the tubes that carry sperm, prostate, and seminal vesicles affected by tuberculosis. The exception is the penis, which is affected by tuberculosis extremely rare. In most cases, the clinical examination TB foci are found not in one, but two or more sexual organs, for example in the epididymis, prostate, and seminal vesicles. The prostate gland is ranked first on the frequency of lesions of tuberculosis of other organs of the reproductive system.
Genital TB occurs in persons of all ages but is most commonly affects people aged 20-40 years.
In the pathogenesis of genital TB is set to injury, stimulating a rapid progression of existing hidden hearth in the reproductive system.
Tuberculosis reproductive system occurs, as a rule, from the older outbreak of tuberculosis in a patient's organism. Tuberculosis gender, as urinary system runs chronically with periodic exacerbations and remissions. TB infection into the organs of the reproductive system hematogenous or kurinohana-canaliculatum way.
When hematogenous infection primarily affected or epididymis, where semyavynosyaschego channel Mycobacterium tuberculosis fall into the prostate and seminal vesicles, or the prostate and seminal vesicles are affected first, where retrograde on semyavynosyaschego channel TB infection enters the epididymis and next to the testicle.
When urinogenny ways of infection with tubercle bacilli in urine at a tuberculosis of the kidneys, on the excretory ducts of the prostate, semyavynosyaschih and semyavynosyaschih ducts penetrating from the back of the urethra respectively in prostate, seminal vesicles and the epididymis. This is evidenced by the frequency of concurrent tuberculosis urinary and reproductive systems of men (40-75% in various statistical data).
In the spread of infection within the reproductive system are involved lymph vessels of the spermatic cord and a separate genitals.
Infection tuberculosis genital sexual way in practice not observed.
