Further to our previously published report,
1we would like to report further on the subsequent progress of this patient who was further referred by the renal team when she developed worsening gangrene of her left little finger. She was on regular haemodialysis with end-stage renal failure and tertiary hyperparathyroidism. On examination, she was noted to have necrosis of the tip of the digit with the phalynx exposed. This required amputation and subsequently healed uneventfully.
