Abstract

Prostate carcinoma is among the leading causes of cancer death for American men. Intracranial metastases from prostatic adenocarcinoma are unusual, and cystic metastases are rare. Two cases of cystic intraparenchymal metastases from prostatic adenocarcinoma are reported. Our comprehensive literature review revealed that prostatic adenocarcinoma metastases are rarely diagnosed antemortem. If these lesions are detected early and treated with surgery and radiation therapy, survival time for patients with prostatic adenocarcinoma may be increased; however, given the rarity of these cases, routine CNS imaging of men with metastatic prostate cancer does not seem warranted.
