Histopathological evaluation of nail lichen planus: a cross-sectional study.

J Cutan Pathol 2020 Jun 23. Epub 2020 Jun 23.

Department of Pathology, University College of Medical Sciences and Guru Teg Bahadur Hospital, New Delhi, India.

Introduction: Upto10% patients with lichen planus (LP) have nail involvement; still there is a paucity of studies on histopathological features. Nevertheless, nail biopsy is the diagnostic standard, especially for isolated nail LP.

Methodology: Nails of 45 patients with nail LP were evaluated clinically and biopsies taken from most involved nail (25 nail bed and 20 matrix biopsies). Read More

Nail Changes Induced by Chemotherapeutic Agents.

Indian J Dermatol 2020 May-Jun;65(3):193-198

Department of Dermatology, MLN Medical College, Allahabad, Uttar Pradesh, India.

Introduction: Nail toxicity is a relatively uncommon cutaneous adverse effect of chemotherapeutic agents. Rapidly dividing cells of the nail matrix are perturbed by the antimitotic activity of these agents. Although most of these changes are cosmetic and regress once the therapy is completed, a few of these adverse effects are challenging to manage and require temporary or permanent suspension of chemotherapeutic agents.

Intra-Operative Dermoscopy in Assessment of Melanonychia and as a Guide for Biopsy.

Indian Dermatol Online J 2020 Mar-Apr;11(2):171-176. Epub 2020 Mar 9.

Department of Pathology, ESI-PGIMSR Hospital, Basaidarapur, Delhi, India.

Background And Aims: Melanonychia can be a manifestation of benign or malignant pathology and often poses a diagnostic challenge on clinical examination. Even with distinguishing dermoscopic features (nail plate), it can be quite difficult to determine the nature of pigmentation as complete assessment of nail bed and matrix is still not possible. Intraoperative dermoscopy (IOD) can serve as a useful tool to appreciate the bed and matrix changes. Read More

Dr. Phillip Frost Department of Dermatology and Cutaneous Surgery, University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, Miami, Florida.

Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is commonly seen by general practitioners and often presents with neurologic symptoms of nocturnal pain and paresthesia along the median nerve distribution. Approximately 20% of patients also present with cutaneous findings (ulcerations, blistering, sclerodactyly, nail dystrophy) characterizing a severe form called necrotic CTS. Necrotic CTS can also be associated with bone changes (acro-osteolysis). Read More

Should we biopsy melanonychia striata in Asian children? A retrospective observational study.

Pediatr Dermatol 2019 Nov 2;36(6):864-868. Epub 2019 Oct 2.

The National Skin Centre, Singapore City, Singapore.

Background And Objectives: Melanonychia striata is common in children of darker-skinned Asian races, while subungual melanoma is extremely rare and it is difficult to make a diagnosis clinically. However, performing nail unit biopsies in children is particularly challenging and can result in permanent nail dystrophy. The aim of this study was to review the clinical and histologic characteristics of melanonychia striata in pediatric patients of Asian descent to aid in the clinical decision regarding nail biopsy.

Onychomatricoma Micropapilliferum, a New Variant of Onychomatricoma: Clinical, Dermoscopical, and Histological Correlations (Report of 4 Cases).

Am J Dermatopathol 2020 Feb;42(2):103-110

Laboratoire Central d'Anatomie Pathologique, Hôpital L. Pasteur, University of Nice, France.

This is a report of a previously undescribed type of onychomatricoma (OM) with an unusual clinical presentation as a thickened free edge of the nail plate without discernible cavities and distinguished histologically from the ordinary OM by 3 features: (1) the lack of cavitation at the proximal border of the nail plate and the small sizes of the cavities at the free edge of the distal nail plate; (2) a papillated epithelial hyperplasia pattern very different from the digitate pattern of the ordinary OM; and (3) a special pattern of matrical keratinization with pseudohorn cysts that mirror closely those found in onychocytic matricoma (OCM). Furthermore, the sex ratio and sites of the lesion seem different than those of conventional OM with the caveat that the numbers in this series are small. A practical approach to the diagnosis of onychogenic tumor mainly involves consideration of tumors that clinically present as localized longitudinal pachyonychia including melanoma and Bowen disease.

Melanonychia is the brown or black color of the finger or toe nail due to melanin deposition or melanocytes in the nail plate. The evidence of melanocytic disease is made by the dermatoscope, which allows to highlight the anomalies of the plate. The purpose of our study was to evaluate dermatoscopically the melanonychia, both in the form of stain and longitudinal on finger and/or toe nails in order to establish the type of nail hyperpigmentation.

Subungual melanoma is a rare form of melanoma that presents a unique set of challenges largely based on the complex anatomy of the nail unit. Subungual melanoma often first appears with longitudinal melanonychia. Thus, practitioners must have a high clinical suspicion in any patient with longitudinal melanonychia and a low threshold for a biopsy. Read More

Int J Dermatol 2019 Nov 21;58(11):1239-1245. Epub 2019 Apr 21.

Departments of Pediatrics, Laboratory Medicine, and Pathology, The University of Alberta, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

Melanonychia striata is characterized by a tan, brown, or black longitudinal streak within the nail plate that runs from the proximal nail fold to the distal part of the nail plate. Melanonychia striata is due to increased activity of melanocytes or melanocytic hyperplasia in the nail matrix with subsequently increased melanin deposition in the nail plate. The most common cause of melanonychia striata associated with melanocytic activation is ethnic melanonychia which occurs in dark-skinned individuals. Read More

We present a 48-year-old man who had developed a skin lesion on his big toe. In 2 years' time, the lesion had evolved from melanonychia striata to an erratic, erosive, granulomatous plaque of approximately 3,0 x 3,0 cm. Histopathological examination of 2 skin biopsies revealed a nodular melanoma. Read More

Laugier-Hunziker syndrome in a patient with rheumatoid arthritis.

Reumatologia 2019 28;57(1):63-65. Epub 2019 Feb 28.

Department of Dermatology and Venereology, Akdeniz University School of Medicine, Antalya, Turkey.

Laugier-Hunziker syndrome is a rare benign idiopathic condition characterized by acquired macular pigmentation of the lips and buccal mucosa, often accompanied by melanonychia. Although the etiopathogenesis is not fully known, tyrosine is thought to be responsible for the pathogenesis of enzyme hyperactivity in melanin biosynthesis. We present the case of a 66-year-old woman diagnosed with Laugier-Hunziker syndrome and rheumatoid arthritis. Read More

Use of Nail Dermoscopy in the Management of Melanonychia: Review.

Dermatol Pract Concept 2019 Jan 31;9(1):38-43. Epub 2019 Jan 31.

Department of Experimental, Diagnostic and Specialty Medicine-Division of_Dermatology, University of Bologna, Bologna, Italy.

The term melanonychia describes a black-brown-gray pigmentation of the nail plate that, in most cases, appears as a longitudinal band. Melanonychia can be observed at any age, affecting one digit or several digits, in both fingernails and toenails. Its causes can be difficult to differentiate clinically and depend on the number of bands and on their color, edge, and width. Read More

Retrospective single-center study evaluating clinical and dermoscopic features of longitudinal melanonychia, ABCDEF criteria, and risk of malignancy.

J Am Acad Dermatol 2019 May 11;80(5):1272-1283. Epub 2019 Feb 11.

Department of Dermatology, Weill Cornell Medicine, New York, New York. Electronic address:

Background: Longitudinal melanonychia (LM) is a common finding in clinical practice; however, it has a broad differential diagnosis, including subungual melanoma (SUM), which can be difficult to distinguish clinically from benign conditions.

Objective: To identify clinical and dermoscopic features that distinguish histopathologically diagnosed SUM from benign LM and to evaluate the validity of the ABCDEF criteria among patients on whom a biopsy was performed.

Methods: Retrospective cohort study of consecutive patients who underwent nail matrix biopsy for LM at a single center from January 2011 to November 2017. Read More
