Solitary humerus metastasis presenting with pathological fractures are relatively rare. Pathological fractures are invariably fixed in view of early mobilization, pain relief, part of palliative protocol, and disease activity debulking. Pain relief was better with plate osteosynthesis with bone cement compared to intramedullary nailing. Complication rates were equal with both these procedures including local and systemic complications. Complication rates are higher with nonlocking intramedullary nailing. Here we report a case of 70-year-old male presenting with pathological fracture humerus which was diagnosed later to be a metastatic lesion with adenocarnimoa lung. Evaluation and approach to this case is challenging to orthopedic surgeons without extensive knowledge in tumor and metastatic aspects. Hence this case report would be a valuable concise brief of this case presentation, approach, and step by step management with a brief literature review.
