Prostate cancer is the most common malignancy in men in the US. Both at diagnosis and throughout the disease progression it can metastasize to multiple organs (bone and lymph being the most common). Effusions (either pleural or abdominal) are relatively uncommon, but usually occur as a result of soft tissue lesions. Herein we report on a patient with androgen independent prostate cancer and an elevated PSA with disease confined to ascites of the abdomen.
