Abstract

The secondary involvement of the penis by tumors from others organs is a rare event representing only 0.8% of overall metastasis in the genitourinary tract. The most frequent clinical findings is priapism, but occasionally, solitary metastases to the penile skin, mucosa of the glans, corpus spongiosum or lesions of the albuginea mimicking an induratio penis have been reported. We report a case of penile plaque predicting the relapse of an anorectal carcinoma. The precise etiology of this particular manifestation is not well understood and the prognosis is poor. There are no individual treatments with curative intent.
