OBJECTIVE. This study was undertaken to determine the frequency and etiology of mesenteric adenopathy revealed at initial-staging CT in patients with prostate cancer. CONCLUSION. Mesenteric adenopathy is a rare finding at initial-staging CT in patients with prostate cancer and is more often due to coexistent lymphoma than to metastatic disease, particularly in the absence of associated pelvic adenopathy and a markedly elevated serum prostate-specific antigen level. Appropriate radiologic interpretation of the finding prevents overstaging of prostate cancer.
