Answer to last month’s POTM January 2018

A 25 years old male presented with complaints of pain and eroded skin of the fingers of his right hand. He gives history of similar problem during winters in the last two years only. He is a computer technician working in a Cyber Café. What is your diagnosis?


The Correct Answer

The young man has frostbite of the skin around his metacarpo-phalangeal and proximal inter-phalangeal joints (IPJs). He wears partial mittens while working with his mouse on the computer at his Cyber Café. Therefore the distal IPJs remain flexed and are not exposed to cold. He had history of cold intolerance and turned out to have hypothyroidism too.
