Abstract

© 2019, © 2019 Informa UK Limited, trading as Taylor & Francis Group.Urogenital cancers are frequently encountered in daily practice. Prostate cancer is the second most common type in adult males, and 2–3% of all adult cancers are renal cell carcinoma. Kaposi’s sarcoma originates from vascular endothelial cells and is the most common type of sarcoma observed in HIV-positive patients. However, the development of all these types of cancer in a patient without immunodeficiency is very rare. Incidence of urological malignancies increase with aging. In contrast to normal population, patient who have one urological malignancy have increased risk of getting another urological malignancy in a follow-up. So follow-up of this kind of patients is crucial and needs to be done carefully. In this case report, we aimed to discuss a 68-year-old patient who was diagnosed with concurrent prostate and kidney cancer and developed penile Kaposi’s sarcoma in follow-up.
