Prostate : Non-specific Granulomatous Inflammation

A dense inflammatory infiltrate has replaced glandular epithelium which has been largely destroyed.

Some cases of granulomatous prostatitis may closely mimic high-grade cancer.

Small foci of cancer adjacent to foci of inflammation may sometimes be overlooked.

The inflammatory infiltrate is largely composed of plasma cells, lymphocytes, and macrophages. Rare neutrophils are also seen.
