Adenocarcinoma of prostate gland

  • Atypical glands of prostate carcinoma are  densely packed (‘back to back’) . They have irregular shape, and their basal membranes are destroyed at some places.
  • Tumor glands and single cells infiltrate adjacent smooth muscle and fibrous tissue.
  • In needle biopsy specimens is very important to look for perineural infiltration.
  • Diagnosis can be supported with immunohistochemical reaction for prostate specific antigen (PSA).
