Abstract



RÉSUMÉ
Les métastases musculaires sont rares, considérées comme représentant moins de 1% des métastases d’origine hématogène. Nous rapportons un cas de métastase musculaire  chez une patiente de 46 ans sans antécédent particulier. Elle se plaignait depuis quatre mois de douleur des deux membres inférieurs, suivie de l’apparition de tuméfactions centimétriques de ses cuisses, de son épaule gauche, de son dos. Une échographie des parties molles de la cuisse droite a mis en évidence une masse qui a été biopsiée. L’histopathologie a montré une localisation musculaire d’un adénocarcinome. Ce cas montre que les métastases musculaires peuvent révéler un cancer inconnu.

ABSTRACT
Muscle metastases are rare, considered to represent less than 1% of hematogenous metastases. We report a case of muscle metastasis in a 46-year-old female patient with no significant past medical history. She had been complaining for four months of pain in both lower limbs, followed by the appearance of swellings on her thighs, left shoulder, and back. An ultrasound of the soft parts of the right thigh revealed a mass which was biopsied. Histopathology diagnosed muscle localization of adenocarcinoma. This case shows that muscle metastases can reveal an unknown cancer.
