Prostate Sarcoma


  • The second case was a 33 years old male who presented to the emergency room with anal pain, urinary symptoms, hematochezia and loss of 20 kg over the past 3 months.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • OBJECTIVE: To present our institutional experience with adult prostate sarcoma over 30 years. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We reviewed 38 cases of adult prostate sarcoma diagnosed and treated at our institution between 1982 and 2012.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The mean age at presentation was 64 years, and urinary obstruction was the most common presenting symptom. All patients underwent surgical resection and neoadjuvant radiation and 6 had concurrent chemotherapy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • A patient with a history of pelvic radiation therapy for seminoma presented with a prostatic tumor, which appeared predominantly of high signal intensity on T2-weighted magnetic resonance images; low-signal-intensity tissue also extended to the pelvic[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Factors predictive of long-term survival were negative surgical margins (p 0.0005) and absence of metastatic disease at presentation (p 0.0004).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Discussion The first clinical association between exposure to radiotherapy and sarcoma was recognized in 1992 by Beck, in a description of bone sarcomas in patients who had received radiotherapy for tuberculous arthritis [ 1 ].[acanceresearch.com]

  • The purpose of this article is to describe the MR imaging appearance of less-common prostate diseases and how to differentiate these diseases from adenocarcinoma.[pubs.rsna.org]
Enlargement of the Prostate
  • Up to 25% of patients present with metastatic diseases at the time of diagnosis, with common sites of metastases being lungs, bones and rarely liver. [5] On digital rectal examination, there is nonspecific enlargement of the prostate.[saudisurgj.org]
Testicular Pain
  • Primary adenocarcinoma of the seminal vesicle in a 42-year-old man who presented with right testicular pain that had been present for several weeks.[pubs.rsna.org]


  • The staging workup subsequently showed a locally advanced prostate cancer. He was also started on hormonal therapy with leutinizing hormone releasing hormone (LHRH) analogue.[urologyannals.com]
  • Identify infectious, inflammatory, or congenital lesions that do not require a workup for malignancy.[pubs.rsna.org]
  • Urinalysis often shows sterile pyuria, so a high clinical suspicion is necessary to perform staining for acid-fast bacilli. It can be difficult to differentiate tuberculous prostatitis from adenocarcinoma at MR imaging.[pubs.rsna.org]

  • Histology, grade, tumor size, stage, and treatment modality were analyzed. Overall survival was assessed.[journals.lww.com]

  • CONCLUSION: Adult prostate sarcoma has a poor prognosis, especially in cases of metastatic disease at the time of diagnosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • CONCLUSION: Adult prostate sarcoma accounted for 0.7% of primary prostate malignancies and carried a poor prognosis. Early diagnosis and surgical resection with curative intent offer patients the best chance of survival. Copyright 2013 Elsevier Inc.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
