TELES, Maria João; NEVES, Ana Luisa  and  ALMEIDA, Joana. Could it just be a matter of cold?. Rev Clin Med Fam [online]. 2014, vol.7, n.1, pp.63-65. ISSN 2386-8201.

The CREST syndrome is a variant of scleroderma characterized by calcinosis, Raynaud's phenomenon, esophageal dysfunction, sclerodactyly and telangiectasias. Skin affection is usually limited to distal extremities, it progresses more slowly and its prognosis is more favorable than in scleroderma, with the possibility of no visceral involvement. The aim of this paper is to present a clinical case of CREST syndrome, highlighting the relevance of the family physician in the assessment of the patient's signs and symptoms, thus allowing adequate diagnosis and therapeutic guidelines.

Keywords : Raynaud Disease; CREST Syndrome; Primary Health Care.
