Finger clubbing is a striking clinical sign associated with a large variety of diseases and syndromes. Although clubbing is poorly understood, we hypothesise that there is a final common pathway in the pathogenesis of clubbing by which there is increased growth of connective tissue and augmented blood flow mediated or stimulated by cytokines, which are either over-produced or poorly eliminated.
