A man in his 60s presented with lower urinary tract symptoms. His serum prostate-specific antigen level was 6 ng/mL. A prostate biopsy was performed (figure 1).
What is your diagnosis?
High-grade prostatic intraepithelial neoplasia.
Intraductal carcinoma of prostate.
Prostatic intraepithelial neoplasia-like ductal carcinoma.
The correct answer is after the Discussion.
The prostate biopsy shows medium-sized prostate glands with papillary infoldings, tufting and prominent nucleoli (figure 2A–D). The low-power architecture with papillary infoldings is consistent with benign prostate glands. Tufting and nucleolar prominence would however suggest high-grade prostatic intraepithelial neoplasia (PIN).
