Heterotopic bone formation is rare in the gastrointestinal tract. We here present the clinical and pathologic details of a 56-year-old male patient with mucinous adenocarcinoma of the colon and a 70-year-old male patient with colon metastasis previously operated on for signet-ring-cell carcinoma of the stomach who was treated with radiotherapy postoperatively. Both of them showed diffuse bone metaplasia. Heterotopic bone formation is usually present with mucin-producing benign or malignant tumors. The pathogenesis of osseous metaplasia is not well known; however, it is speculated that the extravasation of mucin may have a stimulatory role.
