Prostatic stromal neoplasms: Differential diagnosis of cystic and solid prostatic and periprostatic masses

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

OBJECTIVE. The OBJECTIVEs of this article are to illustrate the radiologic-pathologic correlation of prostate stromal neoplasms and to review the imaging appearances of cystic and solid prostatic and periprostatic masses that may mimic prostatic stromal neoplasms. CONCLUSION. The differential diagnosis for cystic and solid masses in the prostate is broad, and masses arising from periprostatic structures may mimic the appearance of primary prostatic diseases. Attention to clinical and imaging features is helpful in narrowing the differential diagnosis.
