Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) is the most common type of leukemia in the adult western population. It is characterized by the proliferation of mature but dysfunctional lymphocytes, primarily CD5+ B cells. It primarily affects the reticuloendothelial system in the majority of the cases, but can rarely manifest as extranodal and extramedullary lesions. One of the rare presentations is genitourinary cutaneous infiltration, and only a handful of cases of secondary metastases to the genitourinary skin, have been reported in the literature. The current report describes a patient with solitary lesion of CLL in the penis, manifesting almost two decades after the complete treatment of CLL.
