Abstract

Prostate aadenocarcinoma has a strong tendency to metastasize to bone, paticularly axial skeleton occurs at high frequency in patients with that causing significant morbidity and mortality especially. We present a rare case of prostatic adenocarcinoma having metastatic occipito-parietal bone involvement. Apart from bone, brain is also a common site of metastasis but the involvement of the occipito-parietal bone is extremely unusual. Occipito-parietal bone metastasis from prostatic adenocarcinoma was the initial presentation which was obseved in our patient. This is the first case of its kind in the literature where the prostatic carcinoma had metastasized to the occipito-parietal bone of the skull without any symptomatology of prostatic adenocancer involvement.
