Abstract

As it has been recently noted in two papers published in the JBRTBR (1, 2), prostate cancer is the second cause of male-cancer related death. The role of radiologists is crucial at the early stage of the disease, for local and distant staging, and during the follow up of the patient. We would like to take the opportunity to report on an uncommon case of peritoneal carcinomatosis observed during the long term follow up of a patient having prostate cancer. Based on these findings, there was a need for change of therapy, with a positive impact on the outcome.
