[Symmetrical peripheral gangrene of unknown etiology].

Journal Article (Journal Article)

We describe the case of a 19-year-old female patient who presented with acute symmetrical peripheral gangrene (SPG), including all fingers and toes. Further diagnostic work-up did not reveal any underlying condition other than a non-specific transient cryoglobulinemia. Despite immediate anticoagulopathic and anti-inflammatory treatment, all fingers and toes had to be amputated.
