Hypertrophic pulmonary Osteoarthropathy is most commonly encountered in association with bronchogenic carcinoma and tumours of the pleura. Its association with pulmonary metastasis from extrathoracic neoplasms is rare. We report a 33 years old male Ethiopian who presented with Cannon ball lesions, clubbing of the digits, periostitis, gynaecomastia, acromegalic features and bilateral knee arthritis. Related literature is briefly reviewed.
