The article focuses on the pathological aspects of prostatic intraepithelial neoplasia (PIN). It mentions that the disorder is characterized by architecturally benign prostatic ducts which are lined by cytologic atypical cells. It discusses the histological relationship of PIN to carcinoma of the prostate and cancer. It further notes several mimickers of PIN which include clear cell cribriform hyperplasia, basal cell hyperplasia, and ductal adenocarcinoma.
