TURP granulomas?

PROSTATE TISSUE, TRANSURETHRAL RESECTION OF THE PROSTATE (TURP) CYSTOLITHOLAPAXY:
- BENIGN PROSTATIC TISSUE WITH GLANDULAR AND STROMAL PROLIFERATION.
- SMALL NON-NECROTIZING GRANULOMAS WITH CENTRAL GIANT CELLS, SEE COMMENT.
- FOCAL CALCIFICATIONS.
- UROTHELIUM WITH THE CHANGES OF CYSTITIS CYSTICA ET GLANDULARIS.
- NEGATIVE FOR MALIGNANCY.

COMMENT:
The morphology is somewhat atypical for post-TURP granulomas; however, this is favoured in
the context of the prior TURP.

If there is a clinical suspicion of granulomatous disease this should be worked-up.
