Reynolds' syndrome (Telfer B. Reynolds)
A syndrome of chronic liver disease characterized by the coexistence of progressive systemic sclerosis and primary biliary cirrhosis. Other features include jaundice, elevated alkaline phosphatase activity, Raynaud's phenomenon, calcinosis cutis, telangiectasia, and pruritus. Raynaud's phenomenon is an early clinical symptom for the evolution of a Reynolds' syndrome.
