Abstract

Prostate carcinoma presenting initially as multiple pulmonary nodules in an asymptomatic patient without previous prostate carcinoma is unusual. Whether the incidence of prostate carcinoma is significantly increased in patients treated previously for germ cell tumors is unclear. We report such a patient, who responded to combination androgen blockade therapy.
