Raynaud’s phenomenon

A circulatory disorder affecting the fingers and toes that shares the mechanism, symptoms, and signs of Raynaud’s disease but which results from a known underlying disorder. Possible causes of Raynaud’s phenomenon include arterial diseases, such as atherosclerosis (fat deposits on the artery walls); connective tissue diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis; and various drugs, such as beta-blocker drugs. Raynaud’s phenomenon is a recognised occupational disorder (known in layman’s terms as vibration white finger) of those who use pneumatic chains, drills, saws, or other vibrating machinery, and other people whose fingers suffer constant trauma.

Treatment is exactly the same as for Raynaud’s disease, alongside treatment of the underlying disorder.
