A 60 year old man presented with history of overflow incontinence, requiring catherization. Digital rectal examination revealed non tender grade II prostatomegaly. Patient underwent transurethral resection of prostate and specimen was sent for histopathological examination. The specimen revealed spindle cell proliferation interspersed with chronic inflammation. Immunohistochemical staining was positive for smooth muscle actin and desmin. A final diagnosis of inflammatory pseudotumour of prostate was made. The patient was later discharged and advised for regular follow up. Inflammatory pseudotumour is very rare condition of prostate. They usually follow benign course and does not require radical surgical treatment. So a definitive diagnosis is essential to prevent unnecessary radical procedures
