Help docs? Why is the chronic non-bacterial prostatitis so hard to cure?

Dr. Thomas Buehner answered
39 years experience in Infectious Disease
Cause unknown: Nonbacterial is not uncommon but is usually a diagnosis of exclusion because the etiologic agent has not been identified. It can also develop from a noninfectious inflammatory disorder. this needs a thorough work up to make sure that an infectious agent is not present and may even benefit from empiric courses of antibiotics.
