Abstract

Penile metastasis from testicular cancer is a rare condition. To our knowledge, only 11 cases have been described in literature. Patients with non-pulmonary visceral metastases should be considered poor risk, based on the International Germ Cell Cancer Collaborative Group classification. It is debated whether penis lesion is a visceral site. With this clinical case we report our experience with a rare condition, focusing on its unusual clinical presentation, difficult prognostic assessment and identification of the best therapeutic approach.
