Drum your fingers

Drum fingersDrum fingers - kolloidnoi expansion of the terminal phalanges, due to thickening of the soft tissues and deformation of nails (Fig.). The initial manifestation of the symptom is nail changes in hourly glasses. The pathogenesis is unknown; apparently play a role neurotrophic disorders (symmetry of lesions). Observed in congenital heart disease, persistent septic endocarditis, abscess light, bronchiectasis, cavernous pulmonary tuberculosis.

Drum fingers - kolloidnoi or localizarea thickening of the terminal phalanges, giving the fingers similarity with drumsticks (Fig). The changes are mainly due to the thickening of the soft tissues (the growth of connective tissue, edema of soft tissues and deformation of nails that thicken, are raised and acquire the similarity with hour glass (Fig.). Nail changes may be the initial manifestation of symptoms. Pathogenesis drum fingers unclear, the most likely is their trophoneurosis origin. Usually bpts equally expressed on both sides, and on the legs weaker than hands. Bpts occur most often in the long suppurative processes in the lungs (abscess, bronchiectasis, cavernous pulmonary tuberculosis), lung cancer, pleural empyema, tumors of the mediastinum, congenital heart disease, subacute septic endocarditis, cirrhosis of the liver.
Drum your fingers may be subject to reverse after radical surgery for chronic suppurative processes in the lungs.
