The colonic metastases from bronchogenic carcinoma are rare. We present a 73-year-old man presented with features suggestive of pan colitis after metastasis from undifferentiated large cell carcinoma of the lung. The plain radiograph and computed tomography scan of the chest had revealed a mass lesion in the right lower lobe of lung. He had no evidence of significant lesions elsewhere. Considering the advanced stage and poor differentiation of the tumour, no active therapy was undertaken and he survived for three months.
