Osteosarcoma is the most common type of bone malignancy. The primary mode of metastasis is hematogenous. Lung metastasis is common. Isolated hemorrhagic intra-cerebral metastasis has not been reported earlier. This case report is of an 11-year-old boy with proximal tibial osteosarcoma who presented with right focal seizures secondary to a hemorrhagic solitary deposit in the left posterior frontal region. Histopathology confirmed this to be a metastasis from an osteosarcoma.
