Relevance of computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging for penile metastasis after prostatectomy: uncommon case report and brief review of the literature

Penile metastasis from prostate cancer represents a rare condition, associated with poor prognosis. In the literature, authors have reported less than 500 cases of secondary penile cancers, and among these cases of metastases, only 33% are from prostate cancer. Overall reported rate of survival is about 1-24 months. Here, we present an uncommon case of penile metastasis from prostatic adenocarcinoma, with particular focus on the role of computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging in diagnosis and follow-up.
