The localized varicosities of the hands and digits are quite rare with only a handful of cases reported in the literature. The cause of upper and lower limb varicosities are almost the same and the same treatment principles should be followed for both. Here, we report a case of 19-year-old male with localized varicosities of the dorsum of his hand and digits. Diagnosis was confirmed by color Doppler ultrasound scanning. He was managed by multiple ligations and excision of varicose veins with excellent results.
