Signet ring cell prostate cancer (SRCC) is a rare histotype of neoplasm occurring in less than 2,5% of all prostatic tumors. It is actually considered as an aggressive variant of high-grade prostatic adenocarcinoma with poor prognosis and limited life expectancy. Because of his rarity, data in the literature are limited and no recommended treatments have been established to date. We report the case of a signet-ring cell prostate cancer treated with a combination of external beam radiotherapy and total androgen blockade.

Abstract

Signet ring cell prostate cancer (SRCC) is a rare histotype of neoplasm occurring in less than 2,5% of all prostatic tumors. It is actually considered as an aggressive variant of high-grade prostatic adenocarcinoma with poor prognosis and limited life expectancy. Because of his rarity, data in the literature are limited and no recommended treatments have been established to date. We report the case of a signet-ring cell prostate cancer treated with a combination of external beam radiotherapy and total androgen blockade.
