Mucinous adenocarcinoma of the prostate is one of the rare variants of the prostatic carcinoma, and its incidence among all prostatic carcinomas is reported to be 0.3% in the literature. If the tumor variant containing extracellular mucin in <25% of the resected tumor mass, the histology is defined as adenocarcinoma with mucinous features.
