ABSTRACT
Three female patients with a serious form of Raynaud's disease, especially in the lower extremities, are described. The patients were examined with the aid of skin temperature measurements and reflection photoplethysmography. It was possible to abolish the spastic conditions which also existed in the fingers, although to a lesser degree, with intravenous injections of or Duvadilan. The vessels of the toe, however, showed neither subjective nor objective reaction to these injections. Medical treatment did not lead to improvement in any one of the patients, and sympathectomy of the lower extremities had to be undertaken in all of them. Some months after this operation all patients developed serious spastic conditions in the upper extremities; these conditions could no longer be influenced by medical treatment, and sympathectomy of the upper extremities also became necessary.
