Occurrence of skeletal metastases in carcinoma of uterine cervix is infrequent. There are only a few cases who present wits osseous involvement at the time of initial diagnosis. Appearance of skeletal metastases in carcinoma uterine cervix is an ominous sign of progression of disease. Screening studies for detection of occult skeletal metastases in asymptomatic patients are not recommended.
