Abstract

Consultations for nail changes are frequent in everyday practice with direct diagnostic considerations into different directions, traumatism, infection, inflammation being the most common ones, and neoplasia being less frequent. The most common symptom is ungual dystrophia ; that is an alteration or perturbation of ungual growth. It presents differently depending on nature or length of the underlying pathologia. The purpose of this article is to highlight some ungual disorders to help the general practitioner to identify and refer them to the specialist if necessary.
