Spectrum of histological lesions in 185 consecutive prostatic specimens.
BV Mittal1, MB Amin2, SG Kinare3
One hundred and eighty five consecutive prostate specimens were studied. The predominant lesion noted was benign prostatic hyperplasia (B.P.H.) (92.97%). The incidence of carcinoma was low, (7.02%). Conditions which can mimic and should be considered in the differential diagnosis of carcinoma, like basal cell hyperplasia, atypical hyperplasia and atrophy associated hyperplasia were noted in 10, 4 and 3 cases of B.P.H. respectively. None of these cases showed evidence of carcinoma. Corpora amylacea were noted in 38.91% of the cases of B.P.H. and were conspicuously absent in cases of carcinoma. Chronic prostatitis was frequently encountered (58%) and metaplastic changes were seen in 11% of the cases.
