1/309. brain metastasis from prostatic carcinoma.

    Between 1959 and 1971 there were 91 patients with clinically diagnosed prostatic carcinoma who were autopsied at Roswell Park Memorial Institute. In four of these 91 (4.4%) intracerebral metastasis were found at autopsy, but only in one of these four was the diagnosis arrived at pre-mortem. This report describes the diagnosis and management of intracerebral metastasis from prostate carcinoma. It appears, on the basis of our initial experience, that the clinical diagnosis of this entity deserves more frequent consideration.

2/309. Revision hip arthroplasty in patients with a history of previous malignancy.

    BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: The potential association between implants and malignancy has been discussed in the literature, but never as a cause of loosening of joint arthroplasty. methods: The records of all patients who underwent revision arthroplasty at our institution between 1992 and 1995 were reviewed. RESULTS: Among 93 patients who underwent revision hip arthroplasties, 11 (11.8%) had a history of previous malignancy. At surgery, in 2 of these patients, metastasis was found to be the cause of loosening in the affected hip. CONCLUSIONS: When revision hip arthroplasty is considered, patients with a history of malignancy require attenuated pre-, intra-, and postoperative workup. Management algorithm in such cases is proposed.

3/309. Renal cell carcinoma with solitary synchronous pancreaticoduodenal and metachronous periprostatic metastases: report of a case.

    We report herein the case of a patient who underwent successful resection of a solitary metachronous periprostatic metastasis 12 months after undergoing a right radical nephrectomy with pylorus-preserving pancreaticoduodenectomy for renal cell carcinoma (RCC) with a synchronous pancreaticoduodenal metastasis. At present the patient is free of any signs of recurrence 12 months after removal of the metachronous mass in the periprostate. This case report supports the opinion that an aggressive surgical approach is appropriate for RCC metastasis.

4/309. Surgical excision of a metastatic adrenal lesion in a patient with prostatic cancer.

    BACKGROUND: A 64-year-old Japanese man with stage D2 prostatic cancer, after having responded dramatically to androgen ablation, demonstrated a solitary adrenal metastasis without disease progression to any other site. methods: A surgical excision of the lesion and adjuvant systemic chemotherapy was performed. RESULTS/CONCLUSIONS: The patient has since remained alive without any evidence of recurrence 21 months after surgery.

5/309. Gingival metastasis from a prostate adenocarcinoma: report of a case.

    Prostate cancer is the cause of 10% of cancer-related deaths in males in the united states. Metastases are found late in the course of the disease. Metastatic tumors of the oral cavity are rare, representing about 1% of oral tumors and affect jaws much more frequently than soft tissues. Metastatic prostate cancer tends to involve the bones of the axial skeleton. In a recent review, 22 cases of metastases to the jawbones from prostate cancer were found in 390 cases. On the other hand, only 1 case of a metastasis to the oral soft tissues was reported. The authors describe the second case of oral soft tissue metastasis from a prostate cancer. The metastatic lesion was located in the gingiva. Clinicians should be aware of oral soft tissue metastases since they can be the first sign of a not yet diagnosed malignant tumor and they can be very easily confused with several different benign lesions.

6/309. Computed tomography guidance in bone marrow aspiration for diagnosis of marrow necrosis and metastasis.

    bone marrow necrosis is most frequently diagnosed at postmortem examination. Antemortem diagnosis is still uncommon. We illustrate four cases where initial bedside attempts at needle aspiration and biopsy of primary and metastatic tumor tissue from the sternum were complicated by inadequate specimen retrieval secondary to marrow necrosis and/or tissue destruction by tumor. In these cases, CT guidance was useful in the precise localization of the bulk of the tissue mass and consequently the successful retrieval of adequate diagnostic specimens. We demonstrate CT guidance as an excellent and convenient alternative in circumstances where adequate marrow aspirations and biopsies are difficult and complicated.

7/309. Multiple pulmonary metastasis of prostatic carcinoma with little or no bone or lymph node metastasis. Report of two cases and review of the literature.

    We describe 2 cases of prostatic carcinoma with pulmonary metastasis. In the first case there was no lymph node or bone metastasis, and in the second case there was only one bony metastatic lesion. Presentation, etiology and management are discussed.

8/309. Renal metastasis from prostatic adenocarcinoma: a potential diagnostic pitfall.

    We report a case of renal metastases from prostate cancer to show that the possibility of tumor metastasis, although rare, should always be considered in the differential diagnosis of renal mass.

9/309. brain metastasis: an unusual complication from prostatic adenocarcinoma.

    A 61-year-old man with known prostatic carcinoma presented with acute mental status changes. Radiographic evaluation revealed a large intraparenchymal brain mass. Surgical biopsy demonstrated metastatic adenocarcinoma of the prostate. Our review of the literature reveals that cerebral metastasis is a rare complication of prostate cancer.

10/309. Penile metastasis from carcinoma of the prostate in a patient with high serum prostate specific antigen levels.

    Prostatic carcinoma metastasizing to the penis is rare. prognosis is poor with survival ranging from 1 to 24 months. A patient with prostate cancer and a serum Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) level over 200 ng/ml, submitted to radical retropubic prostatectomy (RRP) and after 2 months presenting with two painful nodules in the penis, is described.
