Prostatic Leiomyoma: A Case Report

View Article: PubMed Central - PubMed

ABSTRACT

A pure leiomyoma of the prostate is a rare tumor. Less than 30 cases about prostatic leiomyoma have been reported. Pathologic anatomy examination is the only medium for definitive diagnosis and is important to rule out malignancies such as leiomyosarcoma. We describe an accidental finding of a tumor in the right prostate lobe of a 54 year old man, who was diagnosed with prostatic leiomyoma and treated with open radical prostatectomy.

No MeSH data available.

Mentions: Microscopical examination showed complete resection of a low grade mesenchymal tumor at the right prostate lobe with a diameter of 5.5 cm There were less than 5 mitose figures per 50 high power fields. Resection margins were clear. There was no invasion of the capsule or seminal vesicles (Fig. 3). All eighteen resected lymph nodes were reactive and showed no malignancy.
