Eleven patients with cancer of the prostate and 10 patients with benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH) had thirteen parameters of coagulation evaluated before and after transurethral resection (TUR). Changes in fibrinogen and fibrin split products in both groups suggested potential incipient disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC). It is concluded that prostatic cancer patients are no more susceptible to DIC than patients with BPH.
