Abstract

Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is one of the most common conditions experienced by ageing males and a frequent cause of bladder outlet obstruction and macroscopic haematuria. “Giant prostatic hyperplasia” (GPH) is a term that describes rare cases of extremely enlarged prostate glands, weighing up to 500 g. Typically, patients with GPH have severe symptoms and seek medical care to treat their voiding complaints. GPH is an uncommon pathologic entity with only 10 reported cases of prostate glands exceeding 500. We report first case of GPH in Aligarh. A 60-year-old patient came to Surgery, OPD AKTCH, AMU, Aligarh with increased frequency of micturition, urgency, hesitancy and pain in upper abdomen. Massive prostatomegaly was found on digital rectal examination. The patient was successfully treated with open transvesical prostatectomy and had an uneventful postoperative recovery.
