Abstract

Clinical reaction patterns mainly include variation in the contour of the nail, modification of the shape and alteration of the surface. Changes in the nail plate and soft tissue attachment may happen. Variation in the color of the nail or subungual tissue can be observed as well as distal bony phalanx anomalies.
