ROMERO SELAS, Estefanía et al. Metástasis of a renal cell carcinoma in the corpora cavernosum of the penis: Case report and bibliographic review. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2006, vol.59, n.5, pp.530-532. ISSN 0004-0614.
Objective: We describe a rare case, the metastasis of a renal clear cell carcinoma in the corpora cavernosum of the penis. Methods: 53-year-old patient presenting with a painful, hard tumor in the penis three months after right radical nephrectomy with cavotomy and thrombus excision. Results/conclusions: Imaging tests and biopsy led to the diagnosis of metastasis of a renal carcinoma in the corpus cavernosum, which was confirmed on the pathologic study of the specimen after penectomy. The appearance of renal carcinoma metastases in the penis is generally associated with advanced tumor stage, therefore associated with bad prognosis as in the reported case.
