PASTOR NAVARRO, Héctor et al. Retroobital metastasis in the initial diagnosis of prostate cancer. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2008, vol.61, n.4, pp.524-527. ISSN 0004-0614.
Objective: To describe one case of advanced prostate cancer first presenting with binocular diplopia due to retroorbital metastasis. Methods: We present the case of a 54-year-old patient with the diagnosis of disseminated prostate cancer treated by complete androgen blockade. Results: After the start of hormonal treatment, the patient initially improved although survival was limited. Conclusions: Orbital metastasis is an infrequent site for prostate cancer dissemination which implies a limited survival oscillating between 7,5-30 months. In our case survival was 10 months from diagnosis.
