Abstract

Skeletal muscle metastases are very rare events in colorectal cancer despite the fact that the well vascularized skeletal muscles comprise nearly 50% of the total human body mass. The prognosis in such patients is usually poor. A case of a 69-year-old woman presenting respectively seven and nine months following a colonic cancer resection a isolated left and right gluteal muscle skeletal metastasis following the resection of a colonic cancer is presented. The purpose of this report is to document this unusual site of colonic cancer metastasis and to review the literature in relation to this unusual clinical event.
