Abstract: Basal cells of the prostate account for a variety of proliferations that may be mistaken for adenocarcinoma, including florid basal cell hyperplasia and basal cell adenoma. Other differential diagnostic considerations for basal cell hyperplasia include normal anatomic structures such as seminal vesicles or ejaculatory duct fragments, metaplastic processes (squamous metaplasia, mucinous metaplasia, urothelial metaplasia, and nephrogenic metaplasia), and hyperplastic processes (usual acinar and stromal hyperplasia, postatrophic hyperplasia, sclerosing adenosis, verumontanum mucosal gland hyperplasia, and hyperplasia of metanephric remnants).
