  Abstract:
  Bone metastases from colorectal cancer are not common and most frequently are manifesting in late history of metastatic disease.We present a 67-old man who had first symptoms of metastatic disease manifested with edema and decreased mobility of thumb of right hand. Radiography showed complete osteolysis of proximal phalanx of thumb, which appeared 30 months after primary surgery for colorectal cancer. Histopathologic analysis of amputated thumb confirmed diagnosis of metastatic colorectal carcinoma and excluded osteolysis of other reasons. Metastatic changes in the first and second lumbar vertebra, which were treated with palliative radiotherapy, were confirmed by additional diagnostics.
