Syndrome hypothénarien du marteau: étiologie peu connue de phénomène de Raynaud secondaire [Hypothenar hammer syndrome: little-known etiology of secondary Raynaud's phenomenon]
Schweizerische medizinische Wochenschrift
Hypothenar hammer syndrome is an uncommonly encountered cause of Raynaud's phenomenon associated with professional or recreational activities. We report 6 consecutive cases seen in our angiology unit between 1988 and 1990. Clinical findings include a history of repeated microtraumatisms of the dominant hand, male sex, unilaterality, sudden onset, and severe Raynaud's phenomenon of the last three fingers. Investigations reveal an aneurysm or thrombosis of the distal cubital artery or of the superficial palmar branch, associated with occlusion of digital arteries. Avoidance of the aggravating conditions or resection and/or plasty of the affected vascular segment usually leads to disappearance of the symptoms.
