Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) is a common progressive disease of ageing men that is characterized prostate enlargement leading to lower urinary tract symptoms. Prostate volume have been shown to directly correlate with age, men over the age of 50 have a 40% risk of BPH and those over 80 years have 90% risk. Giant prostatic hyperplasia (GPH) is a rare form of BPH and it is commonly seen in patients neglecting their symptoms or inadequately treated disease. BPH symptoms vary with the grade of the disease ranging from asymptomatic to incontinence, nocturia, hematuria, dysuria and urinary retention in more severe forms such as in GPH. Herein we present a case of a 53 years old male patient that presented with altered mental status, pale skin and urinary retention. During the ultrasound examination a huge prostate gland was discovered.
