TORNERO RUIZ, Jesús Ignacio; NICOLAS TORRALBA, José A.; ESCUDERO BREGANTE, Félix  and  PEREZ ALBACETE, Mariano. Penile sarcoma: a rare tumor. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2007, vol.60, n.7, pp.810-812. ISSN 0004-0614.

Objective: We report the case of a penile tumor presenting with lung and lymph node metastasis, with fatal evolution after the absence of response to surgery and adjuvant treatment. Methods: Male patient presenting with a penile mass appearing progressively, with metastases. Results: Partial penectomy and adjuvant chemotherapy were performed, with the appearance of a rapidly growing local recurrence which led to death of the patient in a few months. The tumor was a penile sarcoma with osteosarcomatous differentiation. Conclusions: Penile sarcoma is an unfrequent tumor that has a very aggressive behavior, requiring early diagnosis and aggressive management. It has tendency to local recurrence, and when it presents with distant metastases is lethal within a few months.
