Bone metastasis from gastrointestinal stromal tumour is a rare outcome of this uncommon disease. This report is of a 73-year-old man with gastrointestinal stromal tumour who developed bone metastases after complete tumour resection. The condition is worthy of attention as there are new imaging modalities and biological target agents available. This report highlights the positron emission tomography–computed tomography findings of this rare outcome of gastrointestinal stromal tumour, and the current imaging trends for gastrointestinal stromal tumours are discussed.
