The pulmonary metastasis and bony metastasis finally resulted from the malignant tumors as one of the inevitable problems. Among them, the bony metastasis, which frequently involved the vertebrae, pelvis, ribs, sternum, and skull, have had the frequencies over 30%. Metastasis to the distal part of the knee is rare. However, acrometastasis which occured in bones of the foot is even rarer(0.4%) and a late manifetation of a disseminated disease from the literature review. Acrometastasis should be considered in elderly patients with a history of the previous malignancy, complaint of foot pain and mass lesion. We are reporting one rectal carcinoma with acrometastasis to the second metatarsal bone.
