Introduction: Blue toe syndrome

Description of Blue toe syndrome

Blue toe syndrome: Atherothrombotic microembolism of the lower extremities due to recurrent cholesterol embolic 'showers' with painful cyanotic discoloration of the toes and embolism to other sites that completely resolve between attacks. Despite the gangrene-like appearance, blue toes may respond to conservative therapy without amputation. (Segen, Dictionary of Modern Medicine, 1992).
