Pediatric Nail Disorders and Selected Genodermatoses with Nail Findings

  • Jane Sanders Bellet


Variants of the appearance of normal pediatric nails are common. Some nail disorders are congenital and others primarily affect children. A number of genetic conditions have associated nail findings and by recognizing them, may help to make the diagnosis. These nail disorders and findings will be reviewed.


Congenital malalignment Chevron nail Onychomadesis Congenital hypertrophy Anonychia Nail-patella syndrome Leukonychia Parakeratosis pustulosa Herpetic whitlow Blistering distal dactylitis Trachyonychia Lichen planus Lichen striatus Psoriasis Onychomycosis Melanonychia Periungual fibroma Epidermolysis bullosa Pachyonychia congenita Ectodermal dysplasia Dyskeratosis congenita Yellow nail syndrome Incontinentia pigmenti
