Phyllodes Tumor of the Prostate

Phyllodes tumor of the prostate is a rare mesenchymal tumor conventionally regarded as a stromal tumor of undetermined malignant potential. While the initial presentation is that of urinary obstruction and/or hematuria, the subsequent clinical behavior is thought to be a function of stromal cellularity and cytologic changes of malignancy.

Of histologic interest, the epithelial component of this tumor varies, including intestinal metaplasia.
