Journal Chiropr & Manual Ther. 2016 ;24(14):Online access only 5 p
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report

Background: A case of metastatic carcinoma secondary to urothelial carcinoma presenting as musculoskeletal pain
is reported. A brief review of urothelial and metastatic carcinoma including clinical presentation, diagnostic testing,
treatment and chiropractic considerations is discussed.

Case presentation: This patient presented in November 2014 with progressive neck, thorax and upper extremity
pain. Computed tomography revealed a destructive soft tissue mass in the cervical spine and additional lytic lesion
of the 1st rib. Prompt referral was made for surgical consultation and medical management.

Conclusion: Distant metastasis is rare, but can present as a musculoskeletal complaint. History of carcinoma should
alert the treating chiropractic physician to potential for serious disease processes.
