|Abstract: ||An eighty five year old man presented with lower urinary tract symptoms
(LUTS) due to prostatic enlargement. The total prostate specific
antigen (PSA) levels were 2250 ng/ml. Histopathology examination of the
transrectal sextant biopsy specimen was reported as adenocarcinoma
prostate. A bone scan confirmed the presence of widespread metastasis.
Bilateral orchiectomy with flutamide therapy i.e. maximal androgen
blockade was instituted.|
