Article

Summary

In each of the seven cases of clubbed fingers presented there was associated severe chronic ulcerative colitis. Clubbing of the fingers occurs as a sequel of chronic ulcerative colitis more commonly than is generally realized. Chronic debilitating inflammatory disease of the bowel may lead, in certain cases, to digital deformity in the same manner as disease of the lungs.
