Abstract: Transrectal ultrasound-guided biopsy of the prostate is an integral step in the investigation of patients at risk of prostate adenocarcinoma. With an increasing number of biopsies being performed, uncommon forms of prostatic pathology will be identified more frequently. Amyloidosis of the prostate and/or the seminal vesicles may be noted on transrectal ultrasound-guided biopsy of the prostate and the implications of this histological diagnosis must be understood. We present our experience of two such cases of amyloidosis and review the literature regarding their management.
