Prostate cancer is a common cancer in elderly men and it frequently metastasizes to regional lymph nodes and sometimes to bone. Very rarely in some of the cases it also shows involvement of non-regional lymph nodes like supra-diaphragmatic lymph nodes. In our report, we present a 60-year-old male, initially misdiagnosed as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) with cervical lymph node involvement may be due to infective region or inflammatory pathology, which was later found to have prostatic adenocarcinoma metastatic to supraclavicular lymph nodes. Very less case reports are present which have shown similar presentations. So we would like to highlight that prostatic carcinoma can be present in an atypical form also.
