On this AP radiograph of the pelvis of a 72-year-old male with known metastatic blastic prostate carcinoma to the pelvis, there are multiple mothball-appearing blastic lesions throughout the entire pelvis as well as diffuse blastic changes in the L5 vertebra and the upper third of the sacrum. These lesions were totally asymptomatic. A biopsy proved that they were metastatic prostate lesions of the blastic type that usually do not require radiation therapy. There is minimal chance for pathological fracture with blastic prostate metastates.
