Vibration White Finger » Scleroderma and VWF

People making a vibration white finger claim are already dealing with a chronic industrial disease, but may face more problems in the future. Vibration white finger, or VWF, is a form of Raynauds disease, which is associated with scleroderma, a potentially fatal condition.


Scleroderma is a term meaning hardening of the skin, which is one of the symptoms. Blood vessels may become more noticeable, and the skin may redden. Invisible symptoms include hardening and fibrosis of the connective tissues around internal organs.

Raynauds disease and scleroderma are associated diseases, meaning that there is not a strongly understood causative relation between the two conditions. Sufferers from scleroderma very often develop Raynauds disease and in turn, Raynauds disease may be the first symptom of scleroderma.

It could, therefore, be assumed that there is a possibility of a future predisposition to scleroderma making one worker more likely to suffer from VWF than another.

Treatment for scleroderma

Scleroderma has no cure, but there are therapeutic treatments. These include exposure to warmth and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory creams. Some research is currently ongoing as to the use of stem cells.

Making a vibration white finger claim

As almost all cases of vibration white finger are a result of industrial exposure to vibration as part of a job, it is very likely that a sufferer from VWF will be able to make a compensation claim against their employer for their industrial disease.
