Acroparesthesia refers to tingling, pins-and-needles, burning or numbness or stiffness in the hands and feet, particularly the fingers and toes 1. Occasionally episodic pain is also present, which can be very severe 1.
It is one of the more common manifestations of Fabry disease (more common than the better known ischemic events) 1, carpal tunnel syndrome, and other peripheral nerve lesions.
