Diagnostic dilemma of a thumb swelling: An unpropitious turn of events
Journal of Cancer Research and Therapeutics
Benign and malignant bone tumors arise in small bones of the hands and feet. Nevertheless, secondary deposits at these sites are extremely rare. We report a peculiar case of an adult man who presented with thumb swelling, which was later discovered to be a metastasis from renal cell carcinoma. Such cases have a sinister prognosis with a survival rate of 6-12 months from the time of diagnosis. We intend to discuss the diagnostic dilemma and treatment of acrometastases.
