Rectal cancers may rarely metastasize in bone and when it occurs, is usually preceded by lung and/or liver metastasis. However, whether it may ever bypasses other organs, particularly lung and liver and metastasizes directly to bone or not, is debatable. Some authors have described the presence of isolated bone metastasis from colo-rectal cancers, whereas others have questioned its' existence in the absence of lung or liver metastasis. A case of isolated bone metastasis from rectal cancer in the absence of lung or liver metastasis is reported here.

Abstract in Chinese

骨转移 摘要 直肠肿瘤可能很少发生骨转移,若发生时,通常是先有肺和/或肝转移。然而,它是否会绕过其他器官,尤其是肺、肝而直接发生骨转移,是有争议的。一些作者描述了的孤立的结肠直肠癌骨转移的存在,而另一些人质疑其有无肺或肝转移。本文报道一例孤立骨转移直肠癌,且没有肺或肝转移。 关键词:骨转移,远处转移,直肠癌
