Acrometastases in Renal Cell Carcinoma: A Case Report and Review of Literature
Skin metastases represent a rare entity, with an overall incidence of <2 % among all metastatic lesions and 3% of all Renal Cell Carcinomas (RCC). They are more common in males. They usually get misdiagnosed, initially, due to their close resemblance with other inflammatory conditions of the skin. Most common sites of skin metastases include the head, neck and trunk in that order. We report the case of a Renal Clear Cell Carcinoma (RCCC) with a right index finger metastasis. Our case should raise clinicians’ awareness for digital lesions in patients with a known history of renal cell carcinoma.
