  Title Back pain and spinal metastases: A case study [case report]
Journal J Can Chiropr Assoc. 1987 Jun;31(2):69-72
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report

One such problem is metastatic disease of the spine. Studies have shown that the spine is the most common site of bony metastasis. This report presents two such cases followed by a discussion of how to avoid costly misdiagnoses.
