Abstract

Prostate cancer metastasis to bone and lymph nodes is common, but metastasis to the gallbladder is rare. We report a case of a 72 year-old-male with a three month history of weight loss and nausea. On further evaluation he was found to have an elevated alkaline phosphatase and radiographic evidence of prostate cancer, skeletal metastases, and a gallbladder mass concerning for concomitant gallbladder carcinoma. Prostate biopsy confirmed high-grade prostatic adenocarcinoma. The patient underwent laparoscopic cholecystectomy and pathologic evaluation of the gallbladder revealed metastatic prostatic adenocarcinoma without evidence of gallbladder carcinoma. This case demonstrates a possible association between prostatic adenocarcinoma and the gallbladder.
