We present a case of primary prostatic lymphoma referring to a 57-year-old man, who was admitted with the symptom of bladder outlet obstruction, and had a history of urination difficulty for two years. The symptoms and signs were compatible with a diagnosis of benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH). The pathology of the specimen obtained from transurethral prostatectomy showed B-cell lymphoma of mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) type. The patient has been asymptomatic and under complete remission after completion of chemotherapy consisting of doxorubicin, cyclophosphamide, vincristine and prednisone for 6 cycles.
