We sought to determine the capillary morphology in patients with clubbing to compare it with that in subjects without clubbing. Subjects were placed in the clubbed or nonclubbed groups on the basis of caliper measurements of their index fingers. In each subject, photomicrographs of eight fingers were done focusing on the dorsal skin just proximal to the base of the nail. Each photomicrograph was randomly graded with respect to the presence and extent of plexus formation, the presence of… CONTINUE READING
