Abstract
Malignant tumors in fingertips have similar findings with fingertip infections. Malignancies should be considered in patients with consistent swelling and erythema of the fingertip, and who exhibit resistance to infection treatments. In this study, two patients with malign fingertip tumors, who were treated under the misdiagnosis of fingertip infections, are presented.

Key words: Felon, malignancy, metastasis, lymphangitis carcinomatosis, paronychia
