Combination of typical infiltrating, small acinar Gleason pattern 3A with sharply circumscribed cribriform pattern 3C. FIGURE 2-28. Gleason grade 3 (score 6). This focus of minimal (limited) adenocarcinoma consists of a few infiltrating, small acini between nonneoplastic glands, indicating Gleason grade 3. FIGURE 2-31. Gleason grade 3 (score 6).

Gleason score 7 (4 + 3). Most of the cribriform structures in this picture represent Gleason cribriform grade 4; however, some of the intraluminal spaces are evenly and sharply punched indicating a Gleason pattern 3C. FIGURE 2-53. Gleason score 6 (3 + 3). Unusual large gland grade 3 pattern with prominent pseudostratification and tufting, simulating high-grade prostatic intraepithelial neoplasia. A more typical pattern 3A is present on the left side. 32 FIGURE 2-54. Gleason grade 3 (score 6).
