Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma of the prostate is a rare variant of prostatic adenocarcinoma considered to have an indolent biological potential. However, outcome data are scant. We report a case of 49 year old male who presented with urinary obstruction. Digital rectal examination and ultrasound revealed enlarged hard nodular prostate. His serum PSA level was 0.729 ng/ml. Histologically, Adenoid cystic or cribriform pattern with prominent peri-neural invasion was seen on TURP chips and it was immunoreactive for c-KIT. After the diagnosis, patient underwent radical prostatectomy. Patient was clinically stable during a limited follow up of two months.
