Prostatic adenocarcinoma with initial metastatic spread to the mandible.

Prostate cancer is one of the commonest types of malignancy in males. Although prostate cancer has a propensity to metastasize to the bone, metastasis to the mandible is rare. Because of their uncommon incidence, the diagnosis of mandibular metastasis, especially those originating from the prostate, may represent a challenge both for urologists and dentists.

Here we present a case of prostatic adenocarcinoma with initial metastatic spread to the mandible.
