Metástase craniana de adenocarcinoma de próstata simulando meningioma parassagital

Cranial metastasis from prostatic adenocarcinoma simulating parasagital meningioma

Resumos

Metástases osteoblásticas de câncer de próstata podem mimetizar meningiomas tanto do ponto de vista de radiologia simples, como de TC e de arteriografia cerebral. Os autores apresentam o caso de um paciente em que metástase craniana de adenocarcinoma prostático simulava meningioma parietal parassagital e chamam a atenção para a importância da correta interpretação dos achados clínicos no dignóstico desta patologia.


The authors report the case of a 69 year-old man in whom X-Ray, CT and angiography findings typical for a parietal parasagital meningioma were caused by cranial metastasis from prostatic adenocarcinoma. The authors stress the importance of the correct interpretation of the clinical features in order to achieve a correct diagnosis.
