• In three patients with prostate carcinoma, metastasis was manifested as nodular lesions about the corona and glans penis. One patient had priapism in addition. The patients had no other cutaneous metastatic lesions. Two of the patients died within two years of the appearance of the penile nodules, but the lesions in the third patient, followed up for one year to date, responded to intravenously administered mitomycin.
