Tripe palms (TP) are the rare paraneoplastic manifestation with the thickened palms and pronounced dermatoglyphics. In cancer patients with mere TP, the most occurring malignancy is pulmonary carcinoma. Although it precedes a malignancy, it may arise at any point in the course of the disease. Here, we present a patient who came with complaints of thickened blackish discoloration of palms and soles for 3 weeks and a clinical diagnosis of TP was made. He had concomitant adenocarcinoma lung TNM stage IB diagnosed 5 months back. Thus, he was diagnosed with TP secondary to adenocarcinoma lung. Although TP precede internal malignancy we report this case as TP occurred after the diagnosis of adenocarcinoma of the lung was made.
