Metastatic Crohn's disease is a rare inflammatory process that is non-contiguous from the bowel. It can affect the penis and is variable in presentation and onset in relation to bowel symptoms. It has been treated with oral, topical, systemic, and surgical therapies. We describe our experience with two cases of penile metastatic Crohn's disease and their management in comparison with other cases described in the literature. Both our patients were of the lymphoedematous type and had sexual and voiding dysfunction. They were treated with topical and intra-lesional steroids and circumcision after unsuccessful systemic treatments.
