Recurrence ­after resec­tion of non-­small ­cell ­lung car­ci­no­ma is gen­er­al­ly asso­ciat­ed ­with a ­poor out­come. Limb mus­cle metas­ta­sis ­from ­lung can­cer is extreme­ly ­rare. We ­present a ­case of a 71-­year-old man who pre­sent­ed ­with a sol­i­tary metas­ta­sis to his ­right low­er ­limb two ­months ­after ­right ­upper lobec­to­my for ­lung can­cer (­stage: T2N0M0). Twenty-­four ­months ­after sur­gi­cal exci­sion and chem­o­ther­a­py he is ­alive with­out ­signs of neo­plas­tic dis­ease. We ­believe ­that a ­more aggres­sive ­approach ­might be con­sid­ered for select­ed ­patients ­with sol­i­tary extra­cra­ni­al and ­extra-adren­al metas­ta­sis ­from ­lung can­cer.
