Because of the increase of fluoroquinorone resistant bacteria after transrectal ultrasound-guided prostate biopsy, we used a single 800 mg/160 mg oral dose of sulfamethoxazole-trimethoprim which has good penetration to the prostate gland. In this study, we investigate the effectiveness of the sulfamethoxazole-trimethoprim as prophylaxis after transrectal ultrasound-guided prostate biopsy. Nine of the 380patients (2.6%) experienced the acute prostatitis. The rate of prostatitis after transrectal ultrasound- guided prostate biopsy in our study is as approximately same as previous reports.
