[Rectal involvement secondary to prostatic adenocarcinoma].


Rectal involvement secondary to adenocarcinoma of the prostate is uncommon and carries a poor prognosis. Distinguishing secondary from primary rectal tumors is mandatory, since each condition warrants a completely different treatment. There are at least five forms of clinicopathological involvement, depending on the rectal wall invasion and its consequences. We report on 6 cases, 4 had been diagnosed when rectal invasion was present, the enteric involvement appeared during the process in 1 patients and the other had prostate carcinoma coexisting with squamous cell carcinoma of the anus.
