A 65‐year‐old man presented with supraclavicular, mediastinal, and retroperitoneal lymphadenopathy clinically thought to be due to malignant lymphoma. Biopsy of a supraclavicular lymph node revealed metastatic adenocarcinoma positive for prostatic‐specific antigen. This site of the primary tumor was confirmed by needle biopsy of the prostate gland. The tumor regressed dramatically following treatment with estramustine phosphate.
