A 46-year-old Caucasian heterosexual male was referred to a dedicated AIN clinic from colorectal multidisciplinary meeting (MDM) with AIN 3 following complete resection of anal squamous cell carcinoma (SCC). On further questioning, he revealed that he also had a lesion on his penis. Histology of the penile lesion demonstrated full thickness penile intraepithelial neoplasia (PIN 3). This case illustrates the importance of thorough genital examination in patients found to have one genital pathology.
