Giant organ confined
prostatic adenocarcinoma: a case report
Giant prostatic adenocarcinoma
represents a rare and challenging treatment dilemma.
We describe a case of an otherwise
healthy 71-year-old African male who presented with a PSA of 5800 ng/ml and a
prostate volume of over 1000cc. Unique aspects of this case include the size of
the prostate, the apparent absence of distant metastases, and the safe usage of
transabdominal biopsy of this mass.
We present this case report and
review of literature to generate further discussion amongst readers as to
management options for this difficult case.
