Blistering Distal Dactylitis in an Adult
To the Editor.—Blistering distal dactylitis is a superficial infection of the anterior fat pad of the distal portion of the fingers, caused by group A β-hemolytic streptococci. The disease has been described in children but, to our knowledge, no case in adults has been previously reported. We herein report a case of blistering distal dactylitis in an adult fishmonger. . . .
