    Bone metastasis secondary to vulvar carcinoma is an infrequent clinical entity. Only ten cases have been published in the literature. We describe a case of squamous vulvar carcinoma, that presented with cervical vertebral involvement, as a part of distant spread.
    A 69-year-old woman presented with radicular pain and a painful cervical mass. MRI of the cervical spine was performed, showing an osteolytic lesion with spinal cord compression.
    This case was unique in presenting vertebral metastasis eight months after chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
