Abstract:   (49 Views)
Hand metastasis accounts for approximately 0.1 percent of all metastatic osseous malignancies. The lung, breast and kidney are the most common primary sources of these metastatic lesions.A rare case of retroperitoneal alveolar soft part sarcoma metastasizing to the distal phalanx of the second finger of the right hand is presented here. The patient underwent complete DIP amputation of the affected finger and was referred to oncologist for further therapeutic workups. Acrometastases run a poor prognosis; thus, palliative treatment is in the patient’s best interest.
