Prostate cancer metastasis to the axial skeleton occurs at high frequency in patients with advanced disease causing significant morbidity and mortality. Apart from bone, brain is also a common site of metastasis but the involvement of the parietal bones is extremely unusual. Parietal bone metastasis from Prostatic adenocarcinoma was the initial presentation seen in our patient. This is the first case of its kind in the literature where the prostatic carcinoma had metastasized to the parietal bones of the skull without any symptomatology of prostatic involvement. The report is intended to alert the reader of this rare site of metastasis from the prostate.
