Comparison of Gleason score V/S Gleason grade group for prostatic carcinoma: A tertiary health care centre study
Introduction: Prostatic carcinoma accounts for 10% of cancer deaths in adults. And, benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is benign enlargement of the prostate gland and is the most common disorder in elderly males. Gleason Score is the gold standard for the diagnosis of prostate carcinoma.
Material & Methods: This study was conducted over a period of 5 years on TURP chips, biopsies and prostatectomy specimens.
Results: According to International Society of Urological Pathology (ISUP) 2005, maximum cases 15/41 (36.5%) had 3+4 score and according to ISUP 2014, Grade Group 2 had the maximum frequency of 15/41 cases (36.5%).
Conclusion: The use of newly emerged Gleason Grade Grouping system (ISUP 2014) has led to reduced stress and confusion about the grades among the patients regarding prostate carcinoma.
