Isolated Hepatic Metastasis from Prostate Carcinoma

Worldwide, prostate cancer is considered the second most common cancer in men. Most common sites for metastatic disease are lymph nodes and bones. However, isolated liver metastasis from prostate cancer is rare. We present a 75 year-old male with prostate adenocarcinoma diagnosed 7 years ago. With rising PSA, he underwent imaging and found to have isolated hepatic metastasis. After left hepatic lobectomy, his PSA dramatically decreased to < 0.01. Physicians should be aware of isolated hepatic metastasis in patients with prostate cancer. Metastasectomy should be considered in such case, and combined medical and surgical approach may prolong the overall survival.
