The skeleton of a mature male from the Middle Ages, excavated in Svendborg, Denmark, presented multiple osteosclerotic metastases probably of a carcinoma of the prostate gland. This diagnosis is based on radiographic and histological studies. Coexisting gross changes of the spine are identified as vertebral osteophytosis.
