During this period, as many as thirty proposed tumor grading protocols have appeared in the literature. 13 The Gleason grade of the tumor identified in needle biopsies has demonstrated value in pretherapy prediction of capsular penetration, seminal vesicle involvement, positive surgical margins, pelvic lymph node metastases, and posttherapy biochemical failure and cancer-specific survival following definitive therapy.
Currently, it is recommended that this additional pattern information be included in a note, and not in a formal modification of the Gleason score in the diagnosis. 15,16 Reflecting the significant difference in clinical aggressiveness of Gleason 6 and Gleason 7 (the latter containing a component of Gleason pattern 4), multiple studies have addressed the significance of Gleason pattern 4 and 5 in needle biopsies. 6 Although Gleason grading of prostatic needle biopsies is the cornerstone of therapeutic decision making, a discussion of its contribution would be incomplete without considering its limitations demonstrated in daily practice.
