Hormonal therapy occasionally produces long-term survival of men with metastic carcinoma of the prostate. To identify which patients will benefit for long intervals a retrospective analysis was done on 56 men with stage D carcinoma of the prostate treated between 1963 and 1968. Of this group 5 patients lived longer than 10 years. We were unable to identify clinical or pathologic characteristics that would have indicated which patients would have done well.
