Intracranial metastases as the first manifestation of prostate cancer

Urology. 1996 Nov;48(5):789-93. doi: 10.1016/S0090-4295(96)00238-5.


We report on 2 patients with neurologic symptoms secondary to intracranial metastases from carcinoma of the prostate. In one of these patients, the intracranial lesion was the only clinically detectable metastasis. We have found only three other such cases reported in the English-language literature.
