  Microscopic description
Sections show an infiltrating neoplasm composed of single separate varying sized rounded glands ,occupying approximately 5% of the biopsy. Immunostains demonstrate the neoplastic glands showing the absence of basal cell layer.Internal control reveals strong staining of basal cell layer in benign prostatic acini.

Sections show slightly hyperplastic glands lined by tall columnar cells with no significant nuclear atypia. Immunohistochemistry with high molecular weight cytokeratin, highlighting the basal cell layer also demonstrate staining in the glands of concern, a feature consistent with benignity. controls are adequate.

Immunostains demonstate the neoplastic glands showing the absence of basal cell layer. Internal control reveals strong staining of basal cell layer in benign prostatic acini.  B.
