Abstract

Prostatic carcinoma is the second leading cause of cancer mortality in American men. Twenty-seven thousand deaths from this aggressive neoplasm were predicted for 1987. Although this malignancy has metastasized to almost all of the structures in the head and neck, it demonstrates a pathophysiologic proclivity for the supraclavicular lymph nodes. Combining fine-needle aspiration with immunohistochemical techniques produces a cost-effective method to expedite the diagnosis of this hormone-responsive tumor. Four patients presenting with prostatic carcinoma and neck metastasis in a three-year period are reported and discussed.
