Schistosomiasis and adenocarcinoma of prostate: a morphologic study.


A case of prostatic adenocarcinoma coincident with Schistosoma mansoni infestation of the prostate is documented. To the authors' knowledge, this association has not been reported previously. In view of the presence of numerous eggs within the tumor and the youth of the patient, a possible causal relation is suggested.
