Metastases to the small bones of the hands and feet are rare. Most cases represent a manifestation of known malignancy with disseminated disease. In the absence of known malignancy, their features can be misleading causing a delay in diagnosis. We report an unusual presentation of metastatic lung cancer mimicking osteomyelitis of the index finger and review the nine previously reported cases.
