Prostate cancer progression is commonly manifested by obstructive uropathy, regional lymphatic metastases and hematogenous metastases to axial skeleton. Bone metastases other than the axial skeleton are very rare. Paranasal sinus metastases of prostate cancer are seldom found. This is mostly seen in advanced poorly differentiated prostate cancer. This article presents a case of right maxillary sinus metastasis of prostate cancer treated with palliative radiotherapy. [Turk J Cancer 2006;36(2):79-81].
