ABSTRACT Multiple pulmonary nodules on chest x-ray, known commonly as cannon ball secondaries, are the classical presentation of haematogenous dissemination of a malignant tumor to the lungs. This almost always indicates advanced stage of the disease with a very grim outlook in terms of cure or survival. In this report we present a patient with very extensive Cannon Ball Metastases due to advanced colonic malignancy.
