Abstract Cerebral metastases from colorectal cancer occur in 8\% of cases. Diagnosis is usually made when primary disease and widespread metastases are already known. However, the detection of brain metastases as the first sign of colorectal carcinoma without any liver and/or lung involvement is extremely rare. Central nervous system metastases are more commonly seen in rectal cancer and often occur concurrently with lung metastasis. We report a case of a patient with brain metastases as the first clinical manifestation of an adenocarcinoma of caecum without any other organ involvement.
