CLUBBING

Angle between nail plate and proximal nail fold greater than 180 degrees.

Important causes of clubbing in the adult:

  • Lungs
    • Lung Cancer
    • Bronchiectasis
    • Pulmonary Fibrosis
    • COPD IS NOT A CAUSE OF CLUBBING (if you seen clubbing in a COPD patient, think lung cancer)
  • Heart
    • R to L shunts
    • Endocarditis
    • Pericarditis
