Abstract

Occurrences of metastatic prostate cancer imitating a subdural hematoma are limited to a small number of case reports, even though prostate cancer spreads to the dura more than other types of cancer. Here, we present the case of a 64 year-old male whose prostate carcinoma's metastasis mimicked a subdural hematoma, and he suffered a middle cerebral artery stroke. Prostate cancer's high rate of progression to the dura is disproportionate to its relatively low rate of brain metastasis. Furthermore, we explore the potential molecular implications of prostate cancer's propensity to spread to the dura.
