Abstract

 Brain metastases arising from prostate cancer are rare and typically occur late in the course of the disease. Most patients have widespread metastasis before developing brain metastases from prostate cancer. We report the case of a 68-year-old male with long history of BPH presented with symptomatic brain metastasis. Treatment of the metastatic site included tumor resection and adjuvant stereotactic radiation treatment (RT) to the surgical bed, followed by steroids, anticonvulsant and ADT, resulting in a favorable outcome.

Keywords: Brain Metastases; Prostate Cancer; Radiation Treatment (RT)
