Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Palmar and finger varicosities are quite frequent but rarely reported in the literature. They appear as subcutaneous bluish dilations but the symptomatology is often deceptive. Surgery is the most effective therapy. We present a typical case which emphasizes the role of color Doppler ultrasonography (US) in the diagnosis of palmar and finger varicosities and in the evaluation of complications occurring in connection with this disorder.
