Bronchial adenocarcinoma presenting as bone metastases of ha
Bone metastases of the hands and feet (acrometastases) are rare. Their presentation is variable and is confused with certain inflammatory conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, gout, tenosynovitis, fracture or infection (panartius, osteomyelitis).

The etiology of non-digital acrometastases is common to primary tumors with bone metastases (prostate, lung, kidney, breast, thyroid, and digestive tube).

However, digital acrometastases are seen almost exclusively during bronchial neoplasia. Published in the International Journal of Research in Orthopaedics, the authors describe the case of a 43 year-old man admitted to the bread and swelling of the middle finger distal phalanx of the left hand.
