Definition / general
  • Rare tumor with cellular or sarcomatoid stroma and hyperplastic glands
  • Resembles breast tumor
  • Histological grading is predictive of short-term outcome based on the combination of stromal cellularity, cytological atypia, number of mitotic figures and the stroma-to-epithelium ratio (J Urol 2004;172:894)
  • Usually recurs after transurethral prostatic resection
