Multiparametric MRI and targeted biopsies of the prostate have been increasingly utilized in men with elevated PSA. It is important to recognize potential mimics of prostate cancer on MRI and on biopsy specimens. Familiarity with the location, imaging and histological appearance of Cowper's glands will prevent misdiagnosis and help avoid unnecessary biopsies. We present a case of Cowper's gland hyperplasia with a review of its imaging and histopathologic characteristics.
