Prostate carcinoma is the most common malignancy in males and it commonly manifests with bony metastasis in India, but occasionally visceral metastasis to lungs and liver may also be seen. Metastasis to the gastrointestinal tract is very rare. In literature, we could find six cases only. We present here 7 th patient of carcinoma prostate, which metastasized to stomach. He had epigastric pain, which was mistaken initially with analgesic induced acid peptic disease abut later, on endoscopy a gastric nodule was seen. Histopathology and immunohistochemistry of this confirmed it to be metastasis from prostate. This visceral metastasis to stomach usually spreads through lymphatic's rather than by hematogenous route. This case is being presented because of its rare occurrence.
