Abstract : Penile squamous cell carcinoma is a rare malignancy seen more frequently in developing countries. Metastasis occurs in a predictable manner, with superficial lymph node involvement occurring first, followed by deep lymph node involvement, and then spreading to distant organs. The brain, lungs, liver, and bones are typical sites of distant metastases. In this report, we present the case of a 60-year-old male patient with penile carcinoma cell squamous with metastasis to the skin. Initially, the patient complained of dark, painful, and itchy nodules in the right inguinal 3 months ago. The patient had a history of total penectomy after the previous diagnosis of penile squamous cell carcinoma with positive lymphovascular invasion. In inspection, hyperpigmented nodules and ulcers were seen in the right inguinal region and hyperpigmented nodules in the abdominal region. Histopathological dan immunohistochemistry examination revealed squamous cell carcinoma appearance with inguinal lymph nodes metastasis and abundance of cytokeratin. Finally, the patient was diagnosed with skin metastasis of penile squamous cell carcinoma and had been treated coventionally.
