A rare case of distant metastasis to spinal column – lumbar vertebra (L5) – from laryngeal cancer was reported. It must be noted that in 10 % of cases metastases to vertebral column are fi rst symptom of a neoplastic disease and sixty-fi ve percent of patients with advanced cancer present bone metastases. Metastatic involvement of the bone is one of the most frequent causes of pain in cancer patients and represents one of the fi rst signs of widespread neoplastic disease. Nevertheless metastases to lumbar vertebral column from laryngeal cancer is very rare. In presented case MRI and CT were performed to confi rm metastasis. Laryngological examination revealed tumor of a right part of larynx – squamous cell carcinoma (G2) in histopathological examination. The patient was qualifi ed to palliative radiotherapy and still is under laryngological observation.
