Abstract The onset of osseous metastases during the course of colorectal cancer is not common. When they appear they are usually combined with visceral metastases to the liver, lungs and brain. In our report we refer to the case of a 78-year-old patient who presented a solitary bone metastasis from rectal carcinoma in the middle of his right tibia. A year before he had been operated for a Dukes stage B1 adenocarcinoma of the rectum. The rest of the check was negative for other metastases. He received external radiotherapy and capecitabine with bisphosphonates as palliative treatment. 19 months after the original diagnosis of bone metastasis the patient has stable disease.
