Abstract

Penile metastases are extremely rare events and generally occurs at a late stage of primary disease. They mostly originate from prostate and bladder in the genitourinary tract. Penile metastases have a dismal prognosis and very low survival rates. We report a case of penile metastasis in 70-year-old geriatric male patient with prostatic adenocarcinoma who was treated with cabazitaxel chemotherapy beyond 20 cycles with a good response and acceptable minimal toxicity.
