Abstract

The skeletal muscle is a very unusual site of metastasis from any malignancy. Extremely rare is a metastasis from lung cancer. The most common metastatic sites of non-small cell lung cancer are the liver, adrenal glands, lungs and pleura, bone and central nervous system. We report a case of large cell undifferentiated lung carcinoma histologically proven metastasis in the right scapular area.

Keywords:
