Abstract

Metastases from bladder cancer to the bones of the hands or feet are rare and usually present after the diagnosis of the primary lesion has been made. This case report describes a 76-year-old man presenting with initial signs of infection of the right foot. Subsequent bone scan revealed multiple bony metastases and hydronephrosis raising the possibility of a primary bladder tumour that was later confirmed by urine cytology and fine needle aspiration of the foot.
