Nailfold capillary patterns were studied in 107 patients with Raynaud's phenomenon (RP), including patients wih (n = 39) and without (n = 68) connective tissue disease (CTD). Capillary density was decreased in patients with sclerodactyly, digital ulcers, tuft resorption, and telangiectasia, compared with patients without these symptoms. In addition, an inverse relationship was found between the severity of RP at first presentation (as graded by photoelectric plethysmography during cooling) and… CONTINUE READING
