Cancers of nasal cavity are relatively uncommon; and osseous metastases distal to the elbow and knee joints are also very rare. We herein report the two rare occurrences of nasal cavity carcinoma and acrometastasis together in the same patient, which is the first such case report to the best of our knowledge. The features associated with acrometastasis in the present study are similar to what has been cited in the literature, such as male gender, older age, widespread metastasis, single bone metastasis, lytic lesion, third finger, distal phalanx, poor prognosis, and short survival; however, involvement of left hand and nasal cavity as the primary site of tumor were the exceptions.
