Abstract

Up to the present time we are still without definite knowledge regarding the etiology and pathology of Raynaud's disease and allied conditions. The present case offers some interesting features, for which reason it is thought advisable to add it to the literature. It has been frequently noted in Raynaud's disease that there is a hereditary tendency. This, however, has not been determined in the present instance, and from our observations no definite etiologic factor could be established. Occupations and various trades have been mentioned as possible causes; but in the light of more recent investigation it does not seem that they have any definite relation to the disease. In the case here presented the factor of exposure enters; but it is questionable what part it played in the etiology. We have had this patient under observation from February, 1919, until a very recent date.
