Clinical and pathological features of metastatic adenocarcinoma of the prostate to the ileum.

Ecke TH, Koch S, Ruttloff J, Hallmann S - Cent European J Urol (2014)

Bottom Line: We present a case of a 74-year-old white male with a history of prostate cancer with unusual metastasis to the ileum, and with ileus as a very unusual first symptom of prostate cancer.This patient presented to us with histologically confirmed metastasis of the ileum after resection in the Department of Surgery.

Figure 0004: PSA positive reaction in ileum metastasis (PSA, scale 10x).

Mentions: Since the ileum is a very unusual location for metastasis of prostate cancer, we compared the original paraffin blocks of the ileum with our prostate cancer material. Surprisingly, we could demonstrate that this is a metastasis of adenocarcinoma of prostate cancer, and not of rectal cancer. Figure 1 shows an overview of the resected ileum and in Figure 2, the broadened adventitia of the ileum with infiltration of prostate cancer tumour cells. As a sign of prostate cancer cells in subserous connective tissue, Figure 3 presents the muscularis propria with the cribriform glands. All ileum samples are PSA positive as shown in Figures 1–4. The paraffin blocks from the resected ileum have been supervised by two pathologists in different departments. For comparison prostate biopsy samples are visible in normal HE in Figure 5 and with positive P405S (AMACR) in Figure 6.
