● Primary lesions may have a history of prostatic adenocarcinoma (PAC) in the prostate, and have a favorable prognosis
● Secondary prostatic adenocarcinoma is usually associated with high grade/high stage carcinoma in the prostate, but may mimic urothelial carcinoma histologically (Hum Pathol 2001;32:434)
