Objective: To study the histopathological pattern of prostatic lesions in patients suffering from prostatism.
Methodology: This retrospective descriptive study was conducted in Pathology Department Bannu Medical College, Bannu, Khyber Pakhthunkhwa, Pakistan and included 157 prostate biopsies in form of open Trans Vesical Prostatectomy (TVP), Trans Urethral Resections of Prostate (TURP) and needle biopsies performed from January 2013 to December 2015. All biopsy slides were processed for H&E staining and mounted. A minimum of four and maximum of ten sections were taken from each specimen. Insufficient autolysed specimen and those biopsies where immunohistochemistry was required were excluded from the study.
