Penile metastases of rectal adenocarcinoma after abdominoperineal resection: a case report

ConclusionThe prognosis of metastasis to the penis is very poor; the best results have been achieved with surgery but only for lesions where metastasis is limited to the penis.

Conclusions: Higher bone metastasis volume and higher total fluoride skeletal metastatic lesion uptake at the baseline F-18 NaF PET/CT demonstrated worse survival in urological malignancy patients with bone metastases treated. F-18 NaF PET/CT can be used for prediction of overall survival in urological malignancy patients with bone metastases.

Abstract While radiotherapy is widely used in cancer treatment, the benefits can be limited by radiation-induced damage to neighboring healthy tissues. We previously demonstrated that the anti-inflammatory compound dimethylaminoparthenolide (DMAPT) selectively induces radiosensitivity in prostate tumor tissue from transgenic adenocarcinoma of mouse prostate (TRAMP), while simultaneously protecting healthy tissues from 6 Gy whole-body radiation-induced apoptosis. Here, we examined the radioprotective effect of DMAPT on fibrosis in normal tissues after a partial-body fractionated radiation protocol that more closely...

CONCLUSIONS: Penile localization is an extremely rare event and a standard of care has not been elaborated. Treatments are palliative and mainly aimed at pain relief and can comprise chemotherapy, radiotherapy, and surgery. Identification of venous thrombosis as an early sign of involvement could potentially offer patients an earlier diagnosis and a better treatment option.

A 68-year-old man, a known case of carcinoma prostate (Gleason score 4 + 4), status post transurethral resection of prostate cancer and radiotherapy, on hormonal treatment with rising prostate-specific antigen 9.0 ng/mL and penile swelling underwent 68Ga-PSMA PET/CT scan for metastatic workup and restaging. The study revealed abnormal tracer uptake in the prostatic bed region, the pelvic and inguinal lymph nodes, and metastases to the glans of penis and scrotum. The penile and scrotal lesion was proved to be metastatic adenocarcinoma from prostate on fine-needle aspiration cytology.

Conclusion: This study can be taken as a small step toward making the registry of patients with urogenital tumors providing valuable information regarding the frequency, clinical presentation, and histological spectrum. Large population-based studies for a longer duration of time across both males and females are needed in the ever-changing trends of urogenital tumors.

CONCLUSION: The most predictive factor of 3yED was the dose to the PB. This may be explained by variation in individual patients' anatomy and this could allow for the development of better strategies to prevent ED. PMID: 30761939 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Parghane RV, Basu S Abstract Transformed small cell carcinoma of prostate represents a distinct tumor biology from the adenocarcinoma counterpart and penile metastasis from prostate cancer is a rare entity. Unique features of this transformation include unresponsiveness to hormonal therapy and presence of visceral metastases, which can demonstrate hypermetabolism on 18F-FDG PET/CT. The importance of dual tracer PET/CT using 68Ga-PSMA and 18F-FDG is illustrated in metastatic prostatic adenocarcinoma (Gleason's score 4+3=7) with previous history of bilateral orchidectomy, chemotherapy and radiotherapy, who p...

We present a pure laparoscopic execution. Presentation: A 61-year-old male patient with a diagnosis of prostate cancer, with PSA 6.54ng/ml, DRE: T1C and Gleason 6 (3+3) 1/12 fragments. All therapeutic possibilities were discussed, including active surveillance. The patient opted for surgical treatment. A transperitoneal technique was used. We started the dissection on the left side, in the limit between the detrusor and the base of the prostate. The left seminal vesicle was dissected and left neurovascular bundle released by a high anterior dissection. We repeated the same procedure on the right side. The urethra was then ...
