Non-obstructive urinary retention--an unusual presentation of prostate cancer.

Abstract

Urinary retention due to obstruction is a common presenting symptom of carcinoma of the prostate. We report the first case in which non-obstructive urinary retention was the presenting symptom in a middle-aged patient with undiagnosed prostate cancer which had metastasized to the spine and caused cord compression.
