Background. Penile metastases are rare and usually secondary to genitourinary and colorectal cancer.Case report. We present a case of a 77-year-old man with penile metastasis who was operated for rectal carcinoma. He was referred to our clinic for penile ulcerous lesion, semierectile penis and voiding dysfunction. Imaging studies showed nodular lesion at glans penis and multiple bone metastases. He did not respond to chemoradiotherapy and he had bad prognosis.Conclusions. Imaging methods and biopsy may help to clarify the diagnosis but the treatment modalities are insufficient in these patients.
