In this paper, clinical, laboratory, and pathological findings are presented of patients with bone marrow metastases of solid tumours (n = 6). Anemia was detected in four cases (66.6%), thrombocytopenia in five cases (83.3%), leukopenia in three cases (50%), diffuse bone pain in four cases (66.6%), elevated serum alkaline phosphatase levels in four cases (66.6%), and hypercalcaemia in two cases (33.3%).
