NCI Definition: A small cell or rarely a large cell neuroendocrine carcinoma that arises from the prostate gland. [1]

Prostate neuroendocrine carcinomas most frequently harbor alterations in TP53, RB1, TMPRSS2, PTEN, and ERG [2].

Most Commonly Altered Genes in Prostate Neuroendocrine Carcinoma

TP53 Mutation, TP53 c.217-c.1178 Missense, TP53 Missense, RB1 Loss, and TP53 Loss are the most common alterations in prostate neuroendocrine carcinoma [2].
