Abstract

Cervical and supraclavicular lymph nodes metastases generally arise from carcinomas of the head and neck. Metastases to cervical lymph nodes from the prostate are very rare. The common site for lymph node metastasis from the prostate is infradiaphrag- matic. Herein, we report a 69 year-old male who presented with cervical lymph node enlargement in the setting of prostate cancer. This type of presentation although rare, may warrant investigating the prostate as a source of metastasis in cases where the head and neck are free from carcinoma.
