Angiosarcoma of penis: Case report of an aggressive penile cancer.

Priyadarshi V, Goel HK, Chakrabarty D, Pal DK - Urol Ann (2015 Apr-Jun)

Bottom Line: Angiosarcoma is a very rare mesenchymal tumor of penis.Though extremely unusual, it should be considered in the differential diagnosis in patients presenting with a penile growth or a localized subcutaneous penile lesions as they are very aggressive and there is a high chance of recurrence.One such case is reported here, which was aggressively treated with total penectomy and the patient did not show any recurrence in 2 years of follow-up.

Figure 1: Fungating growth of penis with scrotal sebaceous cyst and left inguinal lymphadenopathy

Mentions: A 50-year-old man presented with complains of painless penile growth over distal shaft of penis over last 3 months, which was rapidly increasing in size over last 1 month and bleeding occasionally on contact. On physical examination, there was a 3 cm × 3.5 cm fungating growth involving whole glans and distal shaft of penis with multiple sebaceous cysts over scrotum [Figure 1]. Solitary left inguinal lymph node was palpable. Hemogram and other biochemical parameters were within the normal limits. Incisional biopsy of mass was suggestive of angiosarcoma while metastatic work-up was negative. Patient underwent emasculation with total penectomy with bilateral scrotectomy with perineal urethrostomy. As sarcomas metastasize mainly through hematogenous route, inguinal lymph node dissection was not performed. However, fine-needle aspiration cytology of the left inguinal lymph node was performed in the same sitting, which suggested reactive hyperplasia. There were no post-operative complications and patient was discharged from the hospital on the 6th post-operative day.
