prostate phyllodes tumor of the prostate


We present a case of 47-years old man with phyllodes tumor of the prostate, initially treated by open surgical excision of the tumor.
After obtaining the proper microscopic diagnosis of phyllodes tumor of the prostate, we continued our management by 4 times
punction of the cystic structures of the tumor with aspiration of its contents with consequent sclerotherapy. This mode of medication,
has not been published in the literature, up to day, in such a cases, gave the patient control of the neoplastic process and the chance
of normal professional work.
