SymptomsAchenbach's is of unknown etiology, however, it is also not a cause for concern. While it can look sort of awful - the finger turns shades of purple and red and can swell, the condition resolves by itself.

Paroxysmal hand hematoma is a skin condition characterized by spontaneous focal hemorrhage into the palm or the volar surface of a finger, which results in transitory localized pain, followed by rapid swelling and localized blueish discoloration.[1]:828
