Glandular Inclusion in the Periprostatic Nerve Ganglion

The presence of epithelial cells in the nerve tissue is generally regarded as indicative of malignant neoplasia in the prostate, although it may be encountered in the benign breast lesions. Recently, however, we have observed a normal-looking prostatic gland epithelium in the nerve ganglion near hyperplastic prostate. This case, therefore, indicates that benign epithelial-nerve intermingling may occur in the prostatic tissue and that the identification of epithelial cells within nerves as malignant should be more careful in the prostatic gland as is in the breast tissue.
