There are few cases of prostatic schistosomiasis. Here we report a case of Schistosoma japonicum of the prostate, in which the immunophenotyping of individual glandular tubes was atypical. Whether the S. japonicum infection contributed to the lesion or not is unknown. We suspect the lesion was a sign of early precancerous hyperplasia. Follow-up of this patient may give clues about the relationship between schistosomiasis and prostate cancer. This is the first case report of prostatic S. japonicum in the English literatures. A review of the literature is carried out.
