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.


A. Strong cytoplasmic smooth muscle actine reactivity (200×). B. CD34 staining. Only reactivity in vascular endothelium and not in the proliferating cells (200×).

fig4: A. Strong cytoplasmic smooth muscle actine reactivity (200×). B. CD34 staining. Only reactivity in vascular endothelium and not in the proliferating cells (200×).

Mentions: There was a strong immunoreactivity of the proliferating cells for smooth muscle cell markers desmin and actin. No immunoreactivity for CD117, CD34 and S100 was detected (Fig. 4). The proliferation fraction of Ki67 was about 2 percent.
