Metastases to the hand are rare. Most frequently they result from carcinomas of the lung, breast or kidney. This is a case report of a rare peripheral metastatic lesion in a 24-year-old man with melanoma. There are no previously reported hand metastases from melanoma. Because of the extremely poor prognosis for patients with osseous metastases from melanoma, treatment should be palliative.
