Abstract

The authors report a case of an adenoid cystic variant of basal cell carcinoma (BCC) of the prostate in a patient diagnosed following transurethral resection (TURP). A single focus of adenoid cystic carcinoma (ACC) was found. One year later the patient had an episode of hematuria, for which a second TURP was performed; the specimen showed diffuse ACC. The patient then underwent a total prostatectomy (TP). There was no remaining tumor. The patient has been followed for 6 years with no recurrence.
