PMID:  986749     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A 72-year-old man with a seminal vesicle carcinoma is reported. The patient was treated by local excision of the tumour and radiotherapy. When the patient deteriorated and radiological and scintographic signs of skeletal metastases developed, hormone therapy (oestrogen) was initiated. Within a few weeks the patient was free from his severe pain. The radiological and scintographic signs of metastases had either diminished in size or disappeared after one year of oestrogen therapy. The patient is still alive and well 2 years after the diagnosis was established.
