abstract

  • Rectal invasion by benign prostatic hyperplasia occurred subsequent to an open transrectal biopsy of the prostate gland. Frequent transrectal resections of the prostate controlled this unusual lesion initially. However, massive intrarectal regrowth of this clinically malignant but histologically proved benign prostatic enlargement required eventual pelvic exenteration.
