Abstract
Acral bone metastasis from lung carcinoma to the upper and lower extremities is uncommon accounting for only 1% each of total bone metastases from carcinoma of the lung. Usually, acrometastasis is a sign of very advanced disease with a presence of previous metastases elsewhere. The present paper is one of the very few case reports of the first metastatic location to phalanges of the ring finger of the right hand. A 70-year-old male was submitted to several physical examinations for painful swelling of the tip of the right ring finger. On X-ray, a lytic lesion was found in the distal phalanx of the ring finger and on open biopsy, it revealed deposits of adenocarcinoma. A total body computed tomography was done which showed right lung mass.

Key words: Acrometastasis, CA Lung, Adenocarcinoma
