Abstract

Disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) is the most frequent coagulation disorder associated with metastatic prostate cancer. We report a case of a 60-year-old white man who was admitted in our department with ecchymoses and haematuria secondary to a DIC associated with metastatic prostate cancer. A review of this clinical scenario is also reported.
