Acrometastasis of the foot (cuboid bone) Volume 22, issue 4, Décembre 2006


Acrometastasis of the foot is rarely diagnosed. But, its distal location makes biopsy straightforward. Treatment is palliative and prognosis is poor.

The authors report a new case of metastasis to the cuboid bone of the foot in a 51-year-old woman, diagnosed as a dorsal foot tumour.
