Raynaud's disease is a rare disorder of the blood vessels, usually in the fingers and toes. People with this disorder have attacks that cause the blood vessels to narrow.

In severe cases, loss of blood flow can cause sores or tissue death. Cold weather and stress can trigger attacks. Often the cause of raynaud's is not known. People in colder climates are more likely to develop raynaud's than people in warmer areas. Treatment for raynaud's may include drugs to keep the blood vessels open.
