Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A 19-year-old man was admitted with severe symptoms suggestive for bilateral occlusive disease of his lower extremities. Clinical, laboratory, and radiological evaluation established the diagnosis of Buerger’s disease. Buerger’s disease often poses a diagnostic challenge and requires a high degree of suspicion. Although rare for this patient’s young age, it is important that a correct diagnosis is being made, because the disease process can be stopped if the patient stops smoking.
