The purpose of this study was to identify factors influencing sleep disturbance among benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH) patients in South Korea. A trained reporter filled out the questionnaire by explaining and reading the sentences to 164 BPH patients in J city. The questionnaire consisted of international prostate symptom score (IPSS), anxiety, depression, sleep disturbance. There was a statistically significant difference in sleep disturbance of participants according to income, regular exercise, and number of disease. There were statistically significant correlations between sleep disturbance and IPSS (r=.45, p<.001), anxiety (r=.59, p<.001), depression (r=.42, p<.001). The influential factors for sleep disturbance were anxiety (${\beta}=.41$, p<.001), income (${\beta}=-.36$, p<.001), IPSS (${\beta}=.28$, p=.021). These factors accounted for 41.2% of the variance in sleep disturbance. The result of this study can be used as a basic data for development of a management strategy considering convergent relationship between IPSS and anxiety in order to decrease sleep disturbance of BPH patients.
