Testicular Metastasis of Prostatic Adenocarcinoma after Ablatherm ® Treatment

Marcelo Di Gregorio, Marie-Cécile Nollevaux, Lionel D’Hondt and Francis Lorge

Testicular metastases are rare in prostatic adenocarcinomas. The discovery is often fortuitous, and they are diagnosed with a histological examination. Metastasis is often confused with a primitive testicular tumor. We describe an 86-year-old patient with metastatic prostate adenocarcinoma that affected the left testis. The metastasis was discovered after Ablatherm® treatment. A prostatic origin must be suspected in a patient over 50 years old with testicular metastasis. This study highlights the importance of clinicopathological investigation and immunohistochemistry in determining the etiopathogenesis of testicular masses.
