Yes: Spasm of tiny arteries in a finger unassociated with any other disease is Raynaud's disease and the finger may only turn white and then develop normal color.. Raynaud's phenomenon is associated with autoimmune disorders like lupus but vasospasm on exposure to cold temperatures or stress is still the same.
