Abstract

Historically, a solitary pulmonary metastasis of prostate cancer was considered as metastatic or disseminated disease and could only be treated systemically. However, some patients may benefit from surgical metastasectomy of a solitary pulmonary metastasis. We present an uncommon case of resection of a solitary pulmonary metastasis of prostate cancer after previous radical prostatectomy, resulting in un-detectable prostate specific antigen.
