Abstract

We report a rare case of primary transitional cell carcinoma of the prostate. A 66-year-old man was referred to our hospital with the chief complaints of pollakisuria and residual urine sensation on January 21, 1998. Under a preoperative diagnosis of benign prostatic hyperplasia, transurethral resection of the prostate was performed. Histopathological examination revealed grade 3 transitional cell carcinoma. Then the transrectal needle biopsy of the prostate and random biopsy of the urinary bladder were performed. Since no metastatic tumors or tumor cells were detected in either the prostate or urinary bladder or any other organs, this patient was diagnosed with primary transitional cell carcinoma of the prostate. Three courses of adjuvant chemotherapy (M-VAC) were performed, and tumor recurrence was not recognized 9 months after the operation. This is the 35th case of primary transitional cell carcinoma of the prostate in the Japanese literature.
