Abstract

Skeletal metastases from prostate cancer is common and usually do not pose a diagnostic dilemma. This study reviews radiographic appearances of prostatic métastases to the appendicular skeleton in four patients where the appearances simulated osteosarcoma, Paget's disease and Paget's sarcoma. Prostatic métastases to long bones can produce appearances considered characteristic of other lesions and suggest misleading alternative diagnoses.
