Giant Prostatic Hyperplasia : Fourth largest prostate reported in medical literature

Joseph Maliakal, Emad E. Mousa, Varna Menon


A giant prostatic hyperplasia (GPH) weighing more than 700 g is a rare entity. It is believed that only eight such cases have been previously reported in the medical literature. This case report concerns a patient with a GPH weighing 740 g which was successfully removed by suprapubic prostatectomy. To our knowledge, this is the fourth largest benign prostatic enlargement ever reported in the literature.
