Abstract

A 58-year-old woman had a chronic necrotic ulceration of the fingertip of the third finger and nail plate abnormalities of the first, second, and third fingers of the right hand. Roentgenograms of the hands showed acroosteolysis of the distal phalanges of the second and third right fingers. Skin and nail lesions showed considerable improvement after surgical treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome. The authors review the clinical and radiologic features of similar cases that have previously been reported.
