Prognosis of Raynaud's phenomenon Discussion

Between 40 to 60 percent of patients with primary Raynaud's respond to management techniques. A rare but serious complication of primary Raynaud's is dry gangrene, or dead flesh. This may occur if the arteries stay contracted so that blood cannot bring oxygen to the area.

In most people with secondary Raynaud's, the problem does not get worse. All patients with Raynaud's should discuss any questions about their prognosis with their doctor. (Source: excerpt from NHLBI, Raynaud's Phenomenon: NHLBI)
