Review of problems concerning the clinical syndromes and the aetiology of manual acroparaesthesia. The existence of three distinct varieties of regional pattern is illustrated from an analysis of one hundred well-established cases. Gastro-intestinal disturbances, anaemias, urinary tract abnormalities and infections, and minor endocrine derangements were displayed by all the cases. The three varieties also differed from one another in respect of their selective emphasis on components of these associated clinical syndromes. Acroparaesthesia has a complex metabolic rather than local mechanical pathogenesis.
