Prostatic carcinoma

Case contributed by Dr Bruno Di Muzio


Examination with the initial objective of assessing hepatic haemangioma (not shown).

Patient Data

Age: 78
Gender: Male

CT Abdomen and pelvis (selected images)

Heterogeneous and poorly delimited enhancement affecting the left prostatic lobe and apparently the left seminal vesicle.

Case Discussion

The patient presents with elevated PSA levels. On digital rectal examination (DRE) was diagnosed a hard nodulation.

Transrectal ultrasonography (TRUS) was performed and confirm a left prostatic nodule.

Pathology confirmed the result of prostatic adenocarcinoma.

Is important to emphasise that CT is not accurate at detecting in situ prostate cancer.
