P. Musau

Benign growth of the prostate is the commonest prostatic problem of the aging male, but the giant version of benign prostatic hyperplasia has been reported as a rare occurrence. It is defined as a massive prostatic hyperplasia weighing 500gm and above. Presented here is a case report of a Giant Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia of 700gm in a 93-year-old Kenyan male. While other Urologists in Kenya and the East African region might have had similar encounters with GBPH, this will be the first reported case. It will not only inform the region and beyond but might also trigger a sharing of experiences on this important topic. A review of literature and discussion on pertinent relations with this case is done.
