Generalized Lymphadenopathy of Prostate Adenocarcinoma Origin. A Case Series.

Generalized lymphadenopathy is a rare manifestation of metastatic prostate cancer. We report on 2 cases of prostate adenocarcinoma, which clinically manifested as generalized lymphadenopathy. The origin of the primary tumor was confirmed by transrectal ultrasound guided prostate biopsy.

We underline the fact that a suspicion of prostate cancer in men with adenocarcinoma of undetermined origin is important for an adequate and complete diagnostic and therapeutic approach.
