Abstract

Penile squamous cell carcinoma (pSCC) is a rare cancer with several known risk factors. High-risk HPVs are considered to be responsible for about 50% of cases1 and it is established that concomitant HIV infection accelerates disease progression.2 Although significant advancements have been made in systemic tumor therapy, the prognosis of advanced pSCC remains inauspicious with poor quality of life. We report an extraordinary response of an HIV positive patient with advanced penile SCC, treated with cemiplimab
