Answer

With no specific diagnostic test available, maintaining a high index of suspicion is necessary to make the diagnosis. Failure to make the diagnosis and failure to recognize an associated myeloproliferative disorder are common medicolegal pitfalls.

In addition to the conditions listed in the differential diagnosis, other problems to be considered include the following:

  • Fabry disease

  • Peripheral neuropathy

  • Raynaud phenomenon

  • Vasculitis
