Surgical Management of Onychopapilloma, Onychomatricoma, and Subungual Osteochondroma: Case Series.

J Cutan Aesthet Surg 2018 Jul-Sep;11(3):143-147

Department of Dermatology, Topiwala National Medical College and B. Y. L. Nair Charitable Hospital, Mumbai, Maharashtra, India.

The clinical diagnosis of benign and malignant nail tumors can be difficult. Dermoscopy can provide a clue to the diagnosis but nail biopsy is the gold standard in establishing the diagnosis. Here, we report three cases of rare nail tumors, that is, onychopapilloma, onychomatricoma, and subungual osteochondroma, which were diagnosed on histopathology and managed surgically. Read More

Onychomatricoma: A Rare Nail Tumor with an Unusual Clinical Presentation.

Skin Appendage Disord 2018 Aug 23;4(3):171-173. Epub 2017 Nov 23.

Fredric Brandt Endowed Professor of Dermatology, University of Miami, Miami, FL, USA.

First described in 1992, onychomatricoma is a rare, benign, fibroepithelial tumor of the nail matrix with few reported cases in the literature. The tumor predominately affects the fingers of Caucasian women during the 5th decade of life and is typically slow growing and painless. The authors present a unique clinical presentation of a giant onychomatricoma in a darker-skinned 60-year-old South Asian individual who presented with a large dome-shaped nail that was smooth, shiny, and green.

Imaging technique for the diagnosis of onychomatricoma.

J Eur Acad Dermatol Venereol 2018 Nov 26;32(11):1874-1878. Epub 2018 Jun 26.

Department of Medical, Surgical and Neurological Science, Dermatology Section, S. Maria alle Scotte Hospital, University of Siena, Siena, Italy.

Onychomatricoma is a rare tumour that derives from the nail matrix and grows within the nail plate. The clinical presentation can mimic many other tumours and conditions, and surgical biopsy and histopathological examination are necessary to confirm the diagnosis. As nail surgery is a painful experience for the patient and sometimes can leave permanent onychodistrophy, more precise preoperative diagnosis is needed to distinguish onychomatricoma from other nail diseases more accurately and to limit surgical interventions.

Mohs micrographic surgery for nail unit tumours: an update and a critical review of the literature.

J Eur Acad Dermatol Venereol 2018 Oct 27;32(10):1638-1644. Epub 2018 May 27.

Dermatology, Department of Experimental, Diagnostic and Specialty Medicine, University of Bologna, Bologna, Italy.

Mohs micrographic surgery (MMS) is a good treatment option for epithelial neoplasms, especially when localized in areas where tissue conservation is crucial, such as the nail unit (NU). MMS is a method of radical excision offering high cure rates due to the margin control and functional preservation. Our aim is to provide a review on the use of MMS for the treatment of the most common nail tumours. Read More

Dermoscopic Features of Subungual Squamous Cell Carcinoma: A Study of 44 Cases.

Department of Dermatology, Centre Hospitalier Lyon-Sud - Pierre Bénite, Hospices Civils de Lyon, Lyon, France.

Background: Subungual squamous cell carcinoma (SSCC) is the most frequent tumor of the nail apparatus. Its diagnosis is often missed or delayed because the clinical presentation is atypical and can mimic other conditions. Accurate diagnosis can only be made by performing an appropriate surgical biopsy, but biopsy is painful and often leaves definitive dystrophic scars. Read More

Onychomatricoma: A Rare and Potentially Underreported Tumor of the Nail Matrix.

J Foot Ankle Surg 2017 Sep - Oct;56(5):1095-1098. Epub 2017 May 27.

Residency Director, Westside Regional Medical Center, Plantation, FL.

Onychomatricoma is a rare benign neoplasm of the nail matrix first described by Baran and Kint in 1992. Fewer than 80 cases of onychomatricoma have been described in the literature, 15 of which were initially misdiagnosed and treated as onychomycosis. We present the case of a 66-year-old male with thickening and linear xanthonychia of the hallux nail plate secondary to an onychomatricoma misdiagnosed as onychomycosis. Read More

Onychomatricoma is a rare benign tumour of the nail matrix first described in 1992, and since then, no more than 80 cases have been reported. Despite distinct clinical characteristics, it is frequently misdiagnosed as onychomycosis partly due to remaining an unknown entity. The authors present the case of a patient with a 30-year history of nail abnormalities with more recent growth to alarming dimensions. Read More

Department of Dermatology, Inselspital, University of Bern, Bern, Switzerland.

The nail apparatus is an integral part of the functional unit of the digital tip. Although overall uncommon, all cells and tissues occurring in this area can give rise to neoplastic lesions. Given the special anatomical location, such tumors frequently show morphological and symptom-related differences compared to similar lesions located elsewhere on the skin. Read More

Germinotropic Onychocytic Matricoma: A New Histopathologic Subtype of Onychocytic Matricoma in the Light of the Microanatomy of the Normal Nail Unit, With Special Reference to Nail Mesenchyme.

*The Laboratoire Central d'Anatomie Pathologique, Hôpital L. Pasteur, University of Nice, Nice, France; and †Nail's Dermatology Consultations, Cannes, France.

Onychocytic matricoma (OCM) is a benign tumor of adnexal keratinocytes in which there is complete cytodifferentiation toward the germinative cells of the nail matrix, the keratogenous zone cells, and cells of the nail plate. Several microscopic variants of OCM were initially recognized; acanthotic type, acanthotic and papillomatous type, keratogenous type, and melanocytic as slight proliferation of dendritic melanocytes within the basaloid cells. This study reports an additional histopathologic variant of OCM. Read More

IS NON-TRAUMATIC NAIL DYSTRPOPHY ONLY DUE TO CHRONIC ONYCHOMYCOSIS? THE ONYCHOMATRICOMA. CASE REPORT.

Acta Chir Plast Fall 2016;58(1):43-45

Onychomatricoma is a rare benign fibroepithelial tumour that originates from the nail matrix and can affect the nail bed of fingers and toes. Onychomatricoma may represent a premalignant lesion and although the etiology is still not fully understood, a previous finger trauma is considered the main predisposing factor. Unlike previous scientific articles we report a case of a "non traumatic" onychomatricoma in a 60 years old woman underlining the clinical and histological features to distinguish this uncommon lesion from other lesions originating from the nail apparatus.

Onychomatricoma is a rare benign fibroepithelial filamentous tumor originating from the nail matrix. It typically presents with the clinical tetrad of xanthonychia, pachyonychia, proximal splinter hemorrhages and increased transverse overcurvature of the nail plate. The giant variant can easily confuse the clinician due to its extensive nail dystrophy that can mask the characteristic features of this tumor. Read More

The authors have recently proposed to use the name pachyonychia as an umbrella term that includes 2 distinctly different entities in the form of congenital pachyonychia and acquired longitudinal pachyonychia. Congenital pachyonychia is defined by a diffuse hyperkeratosis of the nail bed. Acquired longitudinal pachyonychia correspond to the true definition of pachyonychia, that is, a thickened nail plate without subungual keratosis. Read More
