Abstract

We report a primary squamous cell carcinoma of the prostate that developed in a 57-year-old man, 3 years after treatment with leuprolide and flutamide for Stage D1 adenocarcinoma of the prostate. This is the first case that describes this transformation from adenocarcinoma to squamous cell carcinoma following the use of luteinizing hormone agonists.
