Solitary bone metastasis in endometrial cancer is very rare. We report a young 29-year-old nulliparous female of endometrial cancer who developed solitary humerus metastasis after 8 months of primary treatment of surgery and adjuvant radiotherapy and chemotherapy. She was treated with local radiotherapy and combination chemotherapy and bisphosphonates. At 6 months follow-up the patient is doing well and is asymptomatic. Even though rare, keeping a high index of suspicion and sincere evaluation in patients on follow-up presenting with bone pains can detect early recurrences. Timely start of multimodality treatment helps relieve symptoms and improves quality of life.
