Primary prostatic sarcomas of adults are very rare with the most common type being prostatic leiomyosarcoma. They occur in men in their late age with the clinical features similar to that of prostatic carcinoma, so diagnosis can only be made after the resection of prostate and histopathological examination. Histopathologically, they are mitotically active tumors composed of interlacing fascicles and bundles of smooth muscle with areas of necrosis. These tumors have an aggressive clinical course and bad prognosis. Here, we present a case of 58 years male who presented with urinary complaints and lower abdominal pain. After microscopic and immunohistochemical examination of the specimen following transurethral resection of prostate, a final diagnosis of prostatic leiomyosarcoma was made.
