Squamous cell carcinoma of the prostate is uncommon. In an attempt to assess the incidence of squamous cell carcinoma of the prostate, we searched the records of the Saskatchewan Cancer Agency over the past 30 years. Using strict diagnostic criteria a total of 6 cases of pure squamous cell carcinoma among 13,497 cases of prostatic carcinoma were identified. The ages of these patients ranged from 42 to 85 years. The survival rates of these cases ranged from 1 to 13 months.
