The authors report a rare case of cerebellar metastasis from prostatic carcinoma simulating on computerized tomography a cerebellopontine angle tumor. Solitary intracerebral metastases from prostatic cancer are infrequent, and their location in the posterior fossa with extension in the cerebellopontine angle is quite unusual.

Abstract

The authors report a rare case of cerebellar metastasis from prostatic carcinoma simulating on computerized tomography a cerebellopontine angle tumor. Solitary intracerebral metastases from prostatic cancer are infrequent, and their location in the posterior fossa with extension in the cerebellopontine angle is quite unusual. The differential CT findings from more common benign cerebellopontine angle tumors are briefly outlined.
