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.
