Colorectal cancer (CRC) is considered as preventable cancer if diagnosed in the early stage. It is also second leading cause of death from cancer in US. Bone metastases (BM) is uncommon presentation with CRC and if it occurs, it involves axial skeletal more than extremities. Many case studies also reports that survival after BM is considerably poor than without BM. Cancer type and genetic mutations also play an important role in such metastasis.
