Intraductal carcinoma of the prostate (IDC-P) is an aggressive form of prostate cancer (CaP) with clinical and pathological features distinguishing it from high-grade prostatic intraepithelial neoplasia (HG-PIN). IDC-P is characterized by a high volume and high-grade disease, with an aggressive behavior. We present the case of a 63-year-old male with diagnostic MRI imaging indicative of IDC-P. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of IDC-P identified with multi-parametric MRI.
