Primary penile malignancy is uncommon. Congenital primary penile rhabdomyosarcoma diagnosed in an infant is extremely rare. We present the FDG PET/CT findings in a 1-month-old boy with penile mass. The images showed hypermetabolic lesion at the base of the penis and left inguinal lymph node. Pathological examination demonstrated rhabdomyosarcoma.
