Lesions : Peripheral vascular problems that can be associate with vascular anomaies at the finger tips would include splinter hemorrhages, Janesway lesions. These can be associated with endocarditis. Other conditions to consider would be lupus or vasculitis. Simple pressure problems can be a factor or antiplatelet agents.
