Abstract

MIRON MUNOZ, Francisco Javier  and  CAMACHO MARTOS, María Dolores. Raynaud´s phenomenon and pain during breastfeeding. Rev Clin Med Fam [online]. 2012, vol.5, n.1, pp.51-52. ISSN 1699-695X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4321/S1699-695X2012000100009.

Raynaud´s phenomenon of the nipple is a pathology precipitated by exposure to cold and leads to intermittent vasospasm of arterioles, producing clinical symptoms of pain, burning and paresthesias. This condition is a treatable cause of painful breastfeeding that can affect up to 1 in 5 women of childbearing age. If misdiagnosed, it can occasionally lead to cessation of breastfeeding due to its uncomfortable symptomatology.

Keywords : Raynaud Disease; Breast Feeding.
