Hypertrophic pulmonary osteoarthropathy
Hypertrophic pulmonary osteoarthropathy is the combination of finger clubbing with the joint symptoms of arthralgia, swelling and stiffness affecting mainly the fingers, wrists, ankles, and knees. It was first described by Bamberger in association with tuberculosis and Saundby in association with lung malignancy, although the term was invented the next year by Marie.
