PASTOR NAVARRO, Teresa et al. Assymptomatic prostatic infiltration by chronic lymphocytic leukemia. Actas Urol Esp [online]. 2009, vol.33, n.4, pp.450-452. ISSN 0210-4806.

Objective: Report of a case of leukemic infiltration of the prostate as an incidental CT finding. Methods: We describe a case of a 60-year-old male suffering from chronic lymphocytic leukemia. A routine-performed CT showed multiple lymphadenopathies and an hypodense area in the left prostatic lobe. The patient was sent to our department to carry out a transrectal ultrasound and prostatic biopsy. He didn't relate any urinary symptoms. Results: By the prostate rectal examination the gland felt hard and with no well defined limits. The transrectal ultrasound showed heterogene parenchyma and several hyperechoic areas by a bad circumscribed prostate. The pathological analysis reported a diffuse infiltration of the gland by chronic lymphocytic leukemia cells. Conclusions: Although the relapse of hematological tumors to the prostate has been described previously, there is no published case to our knowledge of a leukemic prostate infiltration in an assymptomatic patient as an incidental finding by an imaging procedure.
