Abstract

Perineural infiltration frequently takes part in the pathway of extraprostatic extension. In our series, patients with pathological T2 stages and PNI were found to present a higher pT2 stage and Gleason score, even though our early biochemical-free outcome was not significantly higher than in patients without PNI.
