CT scan was performed in an elderly man admitted as an emergency with pyrexia, retention of urine and severe pelvic pain. What abnormality is shown?

There is gross disorganisation of the anatomy of the prostate. The lumen of an urethral catheter can be seen in the centre of the prostate and the bladder is just visible anteriorly. This is an acute prostatic abscess associated with acute bacterial prostatitis.
