Abstract Malakoplakia is a rare inflammatory disorder that results from an infectious process and that may be associated with immunosuppression. It most often occurs in the genitourinary tract; however, isolated cases have been reported in many other organs, including colon, stomach, lung, liver, bone, uterus, and skin. In the bladder, which is the most common site of involvement, it may be mistaken for malignancy on cystoscopic examination or computerized topography scan. Gram-negative bacteria such as Escherichia coli and Klebsiella pneumonia are often isolated from malakoplakia lesions, although other less common bacteria such as Rhodococcus equi may also be found. This is a case report of prostatic malakoplakia diagnosed on needle core biopsy from a patient suspected to harbor a malignancy.
