Gastrointestinal stromal tumour (GIST) of the prostate is a very rare entity and only two such cases are reported in the literature. We report a case of GIST of the prostate in a 69 year old gentleman who had transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) 7 years ago and subsequently presented with acute urinary retention from re-growth of the prostate. The prostate specific antigen level was 4 ug/l. The re-do TURP specimen showed the characteristic features of GIST, both microscopic and immunoprofile analysis. The possibility of secondary gastrointestinal GIST was excluded by endoscopy, imaging and tumour markers.
