This is a disease, most common in women, characterised by abnormal constriction of the blood vessels in the extremities upon exposure to cold. The fingertips, and subsequently the fingers and hands become white and numb when exposed to the cold, and on re-warming the affected areas can become purple in colour and painful. Small areas of superficial gangrene may occur in the skin of the fingers in severe cases, but deeper structures are rarely affected.
