Clubbing is the term used to describe a finger that ends with an enlarged phalanx. It is caused by the excessive growth of soft tissues under the cuticle which leads to fingertips that are thinner at the final joint than at the base of the nail. The condition may be present in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), interstitial fibrosis of the lungs, cyanotic heart defects and many other illnesses.
In DNR, House bluffs out a judge at a hearing by claiming he notices clubbing in his fingers and urges him to see a doctor if he has a family history of heart disease.
