Abstract

MACEDO, Alex Gonçalves et al. Digital clubbing as the initial diagnosis of bronchogenic cancer. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2004, vol.79, n.4, pp. 457-462. ISSN 1806-4841.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0365-05962004000400007.

The authors describe a case of digital clubbing, which led to a diagnosis of bronchogenic cancer in an asymptomatic patient. Based on a review of the literature, we discuss its physiopathological aspects, associations with systemic conditions and recent methods for early diagnosis of digital clubbing. We emphasize the disease's importance in light of its association with several other diseases, including bronchogenic cancer.

Keywords : carcinoma; bronchogenic; osteoarthropathy, secondary hypertrophic.
