The incidence of esophageal adenocarcinoma is increasing, and with this increase is an influx of unusual presentations in the literature. Skeletal muscles are generally rare as sites of metastasis. We report a case of a middle aged-man who presented with a painful swelling of the thigh which turned out to be consistent with esophageal adenocarcinoma metastasis. Few reports have preceded ours. The prognosis is poor and the therapeutic modalities of such an advanced disease are limited.
