Abstract

Prostate cancer is one of the frequently seen types of cancers in men. The most frequent histological type of prostate cancer is the acinar adenocarcinoma. Mucin-producing urothelial-type adenocarcinoma of the prostate is a very rare subtype. The mucin-producing urothelial-type adenocarcinoma of the prostate has microscopic similarities with colon and bladder adenocarcinoma. It has a more aggressive clinical course and does not respond to androgen deprivation therapy. A 77-year -old male patient diagnosed with mucinous prostate cancer was presented in the current case report.
