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: Likewise, the patient underwent amputations to the proximal 1/3 of middle phalanx. After a pathological examination, surgical margin was found clean. Sutures were removed on postoperative 10th day and he was pain-free. In postoperative examinations taken after 10 months after his first visit to clinic, there were no new acral metastases. He was able to use his hands normally during activities (Figure 5).
