Abstract Metastases from colorectal carcinoma usually spread along abdominal lymph nodes or are hematogenous to the liver or lungs. So far, 13 cases of metastases to skeletal muscle have been described. In the following report, the case of a 72-year-old woman with a colonic carcinoma and metastases of this tumor in the thigh is described. Other reports about muscular metastases of colorectal tumors are discussed.
