BACKGROUND In recent years basal cell markers (high molecular weight cytokeratin [HMWCK]) and prostate biomarker alpha-methyl acyl-coenzyme A racemase (AMACR) have been used as adjuvant to morphology in diagnostically challenging cases with a very high sensitivity and specificity. This has increased the diagnostic accuracy of prostate cancer worldwide. MATERIALS AND METHODS In this prospective study, total of 50 cases including 37 cases of malignant lesions and 13 cases of benign lesions of… CONTINUE READING
