A 27-year-old male was admitted to Harbin Medical University Cancer Hospital (Harbin, China) for dysuria and dyschezia, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) reveal a large mass that may involve bladder and rectum in the prostate region. Histopathological analysis of biopsy of prostate indicated mesenchymal origin tumor, and immunohistochemistric confirmed diagnosis of PNET of prostate. En bloc Total Pelvic Exenteration (TPE) and double barrel sigmoidostomy were performed. Double stomas in the skin incision are used for fecal and urinary diversion, respectively.Results: Related complications, such as urinary tract infection and ileus do not occur. Short-term outcome in the case is satisfactory, normal diet can be taken. However long-term efficacy remains to be evaluated.Conclusion: Clinical features of PNET of prostate should be paid much more attention and radical surgery is recommended.
