Abstract

Background: Burger's disease has various presentations. During the present study we have determined the clinical manifestations of Burger's disease in a group of patients referring to Taleghani hospital in 2000-01. Materials and Methods: It was a descriptive study. Diagnosis was confirmed in accordance with clinical manifestations and angiography. Patients' clinical signs and symptoms as well as other demographic data were recorded.Results: 42 patients with definite diagnosis of Burger's disease and the mean age of 35.9±2 years were included. All were male and smoker. 71 had addiction and 54.8 had previous history of smoking for more than 10-20 years. Poor health status was reported in 69. Clinical manifestations were: Resting pain (81), ischemic ulcer, intermittent claudication, thrombophlebitis and upper limb's pain.Conclusion: Our patients' clinical signs and symptoms have differed with reports of western societies. Poor socioeconomic and health status are the major risk factors. Further studies are highly recommended.
