    The heritability of primary Raynaud's phenomenon has been reported in previous works. In this paper we describe the simultaneous onset of Raynaud's phenomenon, rapidly evolved in acrocyanosis and diagnosed as secondary Raynaud's phenomenon, observed in monozygotic twins. This case supports the...
