Abstract

Several reports have described the antiandrogen withdrawal syndrome with various nonsteroidal antiandrogen agents. To our knowledge, there have been no reports describing a durable undetectable prostate-specific antigen (PSA) response with discontinuation of the antiandrogen agent bicalutamide (Casodex, Zeneca, Wilmington, DE, U.S.A.). We report a case in which a decline of serum PSA to undetectable levels was achieved with bicalutamide discontinuation.
