Case Report

Acrometastasis of non-small cell lung carcinoma to rare location as thumb

Serhat Yildirim, Funda Tasli, Tolga Karci, Ahmet Adnan Karaarslan.

Lung cancer metastasis to finger bones is very rare compared to that in other bones. When a patient presents with erythematous and painful swelling of a finger, it can be easily misdiagnosed. X-rays usually show a destructive lytic lesion. This metastasis has a very poor prognosis. Here, a case of a sixty-one-year-old male patient with metastasis of non-small-cell lung cancer to the right thumb, initially misdiagnosed as infection, is described. Differential diagnosis and treatment options are also reviewed in this case report.

Key words: Acrometastasis, metastasis, thumb metastasis
