A Case of Prostatic Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma

Abstract

Adenoid cystic carcinoma occurs most commonly in the salivary glands, and also has been recognized in numerous other locations. However, it is rarely found in the prostate. We report a case of adenoid cystic c arcinoma of the prostate in a 77-year-old man whose chief complaint was urinary retention. Digital rectal examination transrectal ultrasonography revealed a markedly enlarged prostated and PSA was 4.6ng/ml. The transurethral prostatectomy was performed and the histopathological diagnosis was the adenoid cystic carcinoma. We review the clinical and pathologic feature of this disease.
