Abstract

In a clinicopathologic review of 126 autopsied cases with prostate cancer, 14 demonstrated intracranial metastases. Only two of nine symptomatic patients were evaluated for suspected central nervous system metastases prior to death, and five asymptomatic patients were incidentally found to have metastases at autopsy. Intracranial metastases in prostate cancer occur in the setting of widespread disease, and tissue pathology may reveal moderately to poorly differentiated tumor (11 of 14 cases).
