Mimics of Prostate Cancer - Atrophy

slide 1 of 14


Comments:
This focus looks suspicious for adenocarcinoma at first glance. The glands are distorted and cells have microvacuolated cytoplasm. However, the nuclei are small and hyperchromatic. No prominent nucleoli are seen. Some glands are lined by obviously benign flattened atrophic epithelium. This focus is benign and represents atrophy.
