Oncologic recurrence can occur after Robot-Assisted Radical Prostatectomy. Prostate cancer metastasizes often in bones, however the peritoneum is infrequently targeted. Even more, peritoneal dissemination without any other organ involved especially the bones is very rare, only few cases are reported. Through the available literature we discuss about the presumed seeding theory leading to this atypical location for prostatic metastases. Here we report a case of isolated non-ascitic prostatic peritoneal metastases most probably due to iatrogenic spillage during surgery.

Abstract

Oncologic recurrence can occur after Robot-Assisted Radical Prostatectomy. Prostate cancer metastasizes often in bones, however the peritoneum is infrequently targeted. Even more, peritoneal dissemination without any other organ involved especially the bones is very rare, only few cases are reported. Through the available literature we discuss about the presumed seeding theory leading to this atypical location for prostatic metastases. Here we report a case of isolated non-ascitic prostatic peritoneal metastases most probably due to iatrogenic spillage during surgery.
