Bony metastases develop in 30% of all the cancers, but out of which only 1% to 3% occurs in the hand. Lung is the most common site for acrometastasis, followed by breast and renal cell cancer. Metastases to the digits are with non-specific presentation. We reported a case of 79-year-old male patient with initial presentation of swelling over left index finger, which was found to be squamous cell carcinoma of finger on histopathological examination. He was subsequently diagnosed as a case of squamous cell carcinoma of lung with acrometastasis.
