Background: the term prostatic hyperplasia is the most frequently used to describe the benign prostatic growth, this being a widely prevalent disorder and is associated with age, which affects most men as they age. The association between prostate growth and urinary obstruction in older adults is well documented. Objective: benign prostatic hyperplasia large is rare and few cases have been published and should be taken into account during the study of tumors of the pelvic cavity.
Clinical case: it reports the case of an 81-year-old who had significant symptoms storage and bladder emptying, with no significant elevation of prostate specific antigen.
Conclusions: this is a rare condition but it is still important to diagnosis and treatment as may be related to severe obstructive uropathy and chronic renal failure. In our institution, cases of large prostatic hyperplasia that are solved by suprapubic adenomectomy are less than 3%.

Key words: large benign prostatic hyperplasia.
