De novo metastatic castration sensitive prostate cancer (mCSPC) accounts for about 4% of all prostate tumors in Western Countries. This condition has a heterogeneous biological e clinical behavior, ranging from indolent to aggressive and rapidly fatal forms. Recently, the therapeutic landscape for mCSPC has been broadly enriched; indeed robust evidence supports the addiction of chemotherapy (docetaxel) or abiraterone acetate to androgen deprivation therapy (ADT), the latter considered for long the unique standard of care. However, the prognostic stratification and the definition of the ideal therapeutic approach for the subpopulation of de novo mCSPC – albeit largely represented in pivotal clinical trials enrolling mCSPC patients – have yet to be prospectively outlined. The aim of this review was to describe the current state of art about clinical presentation, prognostic classification, and different therapeutic options available for de novo mCSPC patients. Furthermore, we shed light on ongoing clinical trials and future perspectives for this disease setting.
