Abstract

A patient with hysterical, “artificial” or factitious oedema of the hand caused by the application of a tourniquet is reported. A high index of suspicion is needed in diagnosing this condition in which surgery should be avoided. Psychotherapy is the ultimate treatment but a pneumatic compression bag was found to be of use and helped confirm the diagnosis.
