 CASE REPORT

Digital necrosis in a woman over eight

Melon F., Ponte E.

Chronic vascular disorders of the upper limbs are not frequently encountered in women; in addition, advanced age of onset tends to suggest the presence of common diseases such as arteriosclerosis or microembolization. Nonetheless, diagnosis is not always straightforward and in some cases both-laboratory and instrumental findings can do no more than arouse a diagnostic suspicion. We present a case of acrolocalized disorder, which proved difficult to diagnose and which we believe may be attributed to a slowly progressing form of scleroderma of the extremities which, in our case, determined positivity of anticentromere autoantibodies.
