Objective: To evaluate the correlation of International Prostatic Symptom Score with Prostate Volume of Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia patients.

Study Design: A Cross- out sectional study was done. Qualitative variables measured by Chi square test and quantitative by ANOVA. Pearson correlation & multinominal regression were applied.
