Pulp infections are second in frequency to paronychia among infections of the hand (Hamilton Bailey, 1977) Metastatic carcinoma involving the fingers, however, is very rare (Norman and Leventhal, 1966; Martin and Dove, 1983; Schulz and Kearns, 1983). A case is reported to illustrate that a secondary carcinoma from a lung primary can present itself as a pulp infection, with a poor prognosis.
