A rare case of an extragonadal endodermaI sinus tumour of the penis diagnosed on fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) and confirmed on histopathology in a two year old male child is being presented. Extensive search has revealed only two such cases being described in the literature that too reported on histopathology. When the germ cell tumours occur in the gonad, fine needle aspiration is infrequently performed, since resection is usually indicated regardless of the underlying pathology. However FNAC may play an extremely useful role when germ cell tumours occur in extragonadal locations. The possible histogenesis of this tumour at such a rare site is also being discussed.
