Prostatic infarction is an uncommon and less important condition than infarction of vital organs. On the contrary, it is important as problems faced by histopathologists with interpretation of the prostatic infarcts. A misdiagnosis is most frequently made for neoplastic diseases of the prostate. We report a case which describes an 80-year-old patient presented with acute urinary retention and the histopathological examination of prostatectomy specimen revealed features of prostatic infarction. The difficulties faced by histopathologists of differential diagnosis at histopathological examination are the topic of discussion in this article.
