Leptomeningeal involvement of metastatic prostate cancer is a rare clinical entity. We report such a case, along with a summary of three previous cases where detailed clinical information is available. Seven additional cases (for a total of 10 cases) have been reported previously in the literature. It seems that this syndrome is associated with changes in mentation, specifically without cranial nerve findings on physical exam. The physician should be alerted to the possibility of this clinical circumstance in metastatic prostate cancer patients with altered mental status.
