Adenocarcinoma is the most common colon cancer type. This form of colonic neoplasms usually metastasizes initially to regional lymphatic system and through the blood circulation to the lungs and liver, while other forms of expansion and involvement of other organ systems are less common. Extraluminal carcinoma is very rare. Only a few authors describe the direct spread of cancer to adjacent structures and organs. In this paper we present a case of a 76-year old patient with tumor mass extending from the colon to the right hip area -per continuitatem-. The patient had no symptoms and signs that would indicate the presence of neoplastic process in the colon. Only a discomfort in right leg was present and finally tumor mass was visualized. Biopsy and patohistology findings confirmed final diagnosis and type of tumor in the right hip region. Pathohistologicaly tumor was adenocarcinoma.
