Pigment in Prostatic Epithelium

slide 22 of 24


Comments:
Pigment is a common finding in prostatic secretory epithelium. The pigment is Lipofuscin and consists of oxidized lipids. The pigment granules may be yellow-brown (shown here) or blue-purple (next image). Previously, the pigment in prostatic epithelium was thought to be melanin. However, the presence of melanin in prostate is an exceedingly rare finding.
