Metastatic prostate carcinoma to the foot with magnetic resonance imaging and pathologic correlation

Foot Ankle Int. 1998 Sep;19(9):594-7. doi: 10.1177/107110079801900905.


Metastases to the bones of the foot from prostate carcinomas are rare and usually are associated with diffuse metastatic disease. The authors encountered a patient who presented with prostate carcinoma metastases limited to the right foot. Magnetic resonance imaging correlation in this case demonstrated normal marrow signal in the surrounding bones of the foot and increased vascularity of the foot.
