Histological changes of BPH is starting at the age of 35, and there is induced in 60% of 60-year-old men, 80% of 80-year-old men, in 50% of the patient group may lead to lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS). A 74-year-old man with huge BPH visited outpatient clinic with severe LUTS of an year duration. He was diagnosed with BPH 11 years ago and underwent transurethral resection of prostate twice. However, the prostate grew up to remarkable size again, which lead to the bladder outlet obstruction (BOO) and renal failure. There is no report for huge BPH (above 300 g) in Korea, we report a case with huge prostate size that is measured 330 g and treated with suprapubic open prostatectomy.
