Bone and bone marrow metastasis is extremely rare in adenocarcinoma particularly from the stomach. We present a case of gastric carcinoma primarily manifesting as anemia and pancytopenia. On evaluation, he was found to have bone marrow secondaries from a gastric primary tumor. Though such metastasis is rare, patients with refractory anemia must be evaluated to search for solid organ malignancy like the stomach.
