The article presents the case of a 44-year-old woman who suffered from thromboangitis obliterans in the U.S. The patient was reported to have a 1-month history of diffuse arthralgias followed by skin discoloration of the fingers of both hands that progressed during a week period and was accompanied by resting finger pain exacerbated by exposure to cold. She was diagnosed to have thromboangitis obliterans following a series of physical examination. An overview of the patient's case is offered.
