Abstract

We studied 217 subjects (110 with Raynaud's phenomenon under ongoing evaluation, and 107 with connective tissue diseases) by evaluating the number of capillaries, intercapillary distances, avascular areas, capillary disorganization, capillary loop length, capillary width, percentage of minor abnormalities (tortuous, crossed, or enlarged capillaries), and major abnormalities (giant, bushy, meandering, or branching capillaries), microhemorrhage, skin transparency, and subpapillary plexus visibility. Every finger of both hands was examined. All of the measurements were made by 2 observers under blinded conditions
