Penile cancer is an uncommon malignancy which of the management depends on the clinical stage and location of the lesion. Positron emission tomography/computerized tomography (PET/CT) is a promising method for detection of distant metastatic lesions and therapeutic strategy planning. Here, we report a case of penile squamous cell carcinoma of 57-year-old male patient, was referred to PET/CT department for investigation of metastases. There were significantly increased fluoro-18 fluorodeoxyglucose activities in supradiaphragmatic and infradiaphragmatic lymphatic stations.
