Abstract

Adenocarcinoma of the prostate is the second most common cancer of American males over age fifty. However, the reported instances of cerebral metastases have been exceedingly rare and are usually diagnosed at postmortem. This report describes an unusual case of brain metastasis from an occult adenocarcinoma of the prostate confirmed by craniotomy and tumor resection.
