Ig A nephropathy is also called as BERGER disease.

Thromboangitis obliterans is called as BUERGER'S disease...Usually affects smokers: men younger than 40 years..

It is Buerger's disease..

Default anything

it could be anything... carpal tunnel, even pancoast tumour causing that given the smoking though he is young for tumour. i dnt think berger could be the answer as lower limb is more commonly involved.
