Bottom Line: Metastasis fingers (acral metastasis) are finding a poor prognosis.Past medical history should be questioned and metastasis from primary tumor should be kept in mind in patients with pain, swelling, and hyperemia in fingers.Successful surgical treatment on acral metastasis does not extend the life expectancy; however, it reduces the patient's pain during his terminal period, saves the functions of the limb, and increases life comfort.

Mentions: A 47-year-old man was admitted to our clinic with complaints of a wound on his right hand's index fingertip (Figure 1). He had intense pain. In his physical examination, the ulcerated lesion 2 × 1 cm wide in the fingertip was revealed. His finger was swollen and hyperemic; putty white discharge was coming out from the wound.
