Abstract

A 61-year-old man with known prostatic carcinoma presented with acute mental status changes. Radiographic evaluation revealed a large intraparenchymal brain mass. Surgical biopsy demonstrated metastatic adenocarcinoma of the prostate. Our review of the literature reveals that cerebral metastasis is a rare complication of prostate cancer.
