ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Metastatic prostate cancer

History: 73-year-old man with recently diagnosed prostate cancer presents with back pain and acute onset of left-sided pleuritic chest pain.

Findings: Tc99m MCP bone scan (posterior view) show multiple areas of increased radiopharmaceutical uptake in the spine and in the left posterior sixth rib consistent with metastases from the patient’s prostate cancer. Axial CT images (bone windows) of the chest at the level of the sixth rib shows pathologic fracture through osteolytic mass of the left posterior rib with associated pleural reaction. Axial CT images of the chest (bone windows) also show osteosclerotic and osteolytic metastases of the thoracic spine. P-A radiograph shows pathological fracture through osteolytic lesion of the left posterior sixth rib consistent with osteolytic metastasis from patient’s prostate cancer.

Ddx: Metastases from prostate cancer or rarely metastases from other cancers (lung,urinary bladder) Paget’s disease Lymphoma

Dxhow: Biopsy
