We report a 56-year-old man with solitary bone tumor of the right femur. The tumor was predominantly located at the cortex, and extended into soft tissue, but did not infiltrate the bone marrow. The diagnosis of bone metastasis of rectal carcinoma was made by percutaneous biopsy. Although solitary cortical bone metastasis may appear close to primary bone tumor, cortical bone metastasis can be also possible.
