My thumbs have clubbed a little bit. It's not too bad though. I may be the only one who notices though, because I look for it! Hopefully it own't get any worse.

I have had CD for 12 years and my fingers are fine. My oldest son, who is 20, has UC and his thumbs are clubbed. My middle son, 16, has all fingers and toes clubbed. He is just beginning to experience intestinal and tummy problems. The dr is referring him to Children's Hospital in St. Louis, since there aren't many pediatric specialists around here.

actually, finger clubbing can be related to other things like heart failure, lung failure , copd, etc... never heard of it with CD though.

I have heard of it with reactive arthritis, which Crohn's arthritis is possibly a form of ,or related to.
Crohn's for life, symptoms included terrible joint and soft tissue pain, just met first cousin who suffers from Reactive Arthritis-explains sooo much. Great control on SCD (when I'm good) and I get by with a lotta help from my friends!

I have heard of this being related to CD, so that is very possible. I know because I looked in to it when my thumb puffed up on me. There are so many things that can happen with CD, I don't even think they know them all!

I hadn't ever heard of it until my son was in the ER. He went to the ER with a seizure, which he had no history of ever having. The nurse noticed his fingers and inquired about them. They have been like this about 1.5 yrs. I have asked the PA a couple of times, but have always been told if they don't hurt don't worry about them. I went home and looked it up. It is associated with many heart and lung diseases. This is one of the websites that sites CD as a related disease....http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clubbing. We are waiting for our appointment at Children's Hospital to investigate further.

Yes,the first I ever heard of this was in children who have cystic fibrosis, but it looks like that was the tip of the ice burg
