|Abstract:||A 60-year-old man was examined at a local clinic for difficulty in urinating, and was diagnosed with prostatic hypertrophy. He was referred to our department because his prostate-specific antigen (PSA) level was elevated (276 ng/ml). His Gleason score was 4＋3, there was one bone metastasis in the left ileac bone, and multiple lung metastases were present. The patient was accordingly diagnosed with stage D2 prostate cancer. Lutenizing hormone-releasing hormone (LH-RH) analogue treatment was initiated in April 1999, and 9 months later the PSA level had decreased to 4.3 ng/ml. Six years and 9 months after the start of hormone therapy, the cancer had developed into castration-resistant prostate cancer and the PSA level had risen to 43.8 ng/ml. Paclitaxel-carboplatin therapy was therefore initiated. Eight months after the start of chemotherapy, the PSA level had decreased to 25.9 ng/ml, but 6 years and 1 month later it had risen to 925 ng/ml, and the chemotherapy was discontinued. Docetaxel-predonine therapy was initiated in March 2012. Three months after the start of chemotherapy, the PSA level had decreased to 3.1 ng/ml, and the bone metastasis was reduced.|
