Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A papillary adenomatous polyp of the verumontanum was studied morphologically and immunochemically. This rare polypoid neoplasm displayed rather typical prostatic acinar epithelium, and by immunoperoxidase method differentiation products of prostatic origin could be demonstrated easily. Findings support the concept that this type of lesion is prostatic in origin and probably arising from ectopic prostatic tissue in the prostatic urethra. The clinical symptoms of this lesion usually are hematospermia or hematuria, and this lesion can be effectively treated by transurethral excision.
