Metastases to the bones of the lower extremities from prostate carcinomas are rare and are usually associated with diffuse metastatic disease or primary tumors of the abdomen and lungs. I present the case of a patient who presented with lower leg pain and had undiagnosed prostate carcinoma. Unlike previous reports of prostate carcinoma, this rare case includes magnetic resonance imaging, histology, and medical management. This case is unique in its presentation and has not been described previously in the literature. (J Am Podiatr Med Assoc 98(3): 242–245, 2008)
