Case 264


History A 28-year-old woman presented to the emergency department with painful swelling of the third finger on her right hand, which developed quickly. She had no relevant medical or surgical history. Her pain was worse at night, with stiffness decreasing during the morning. Clinical examination revealed generalized swelling of the third finger, cyanotic skin, and fingernail splitting on the second finger of the left hand ( Fig 1 ). Laboratory test results were normal, with no evidence of inflammatory disease. Radiographs of both hands were obtained (Fig 2). CT scanning (Fig 3) and MRI (Fig 4) were also performed.
