J Pediatr Hematol Oncol 2018 May 10. Epub 2018 May 10.

Department of Hematology/Oncology for Children and Adolescents, Sapporo Hokuyu Hospital, Sapporo, Japan.

Background: At our institution, we noted that children with hematological malignancies and solid tumors often suffered from ingrown toenails (IGTNs) during hospitalization for chemotherapy and stem cell transplantation. However, only few reports have dealt with IGTNs in the above setting.

Procedure: Between August 2007 and July 2017, 180 children who received treatment for hematological malignancies and solid tumors at our institute were enrolled in this study. Read More

Department of Dermatology, Hospital Clínico Universitario de Valladolid, Spain.

Retronychia is a recently described cause of ingrowth of the nail plate on the ventral surface of the proximal nail fold. Clinical features are repeated episodes of proximal paronychia, nail plate thickening, and occasionally granulation tissue emergence. The usual treatments for paronychia such as antibiotics and antifungals are ineffective in these cases. Read More

Periungual Eccrine Poroma Masquerading as Ingrown Toenails .

J Am Podiatr Med Assoc 2017 Nov;107(6):551-555

Eccrine poroma is a rare benign adnexal neoplasm originating from a portion of the intraepidermal eccrine sweat gland duct and the acrosyringium. Typically, the lesions are asymptomatic, slow-growing nodules, which may be found in any sweat gland-bearing area. Multiple red lacunae, glomerular vessels, hairpin vessels, flower- and leaf-like vascular patterns, a polymorphic vascular pattern, globule/lacunae-like structures, a frog egg-like appearance, and comedo-like openings have been defined as characteristic dermoscopic patterns of the disease.

Children Receiving Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation are at Increased Risk of Onychocryptosis Requiring Surgical Management.

J Pediatr Hematol Oncol 2017 Oct;39(7):e353-e356

*Department of Surgery †Division of Pediatric Hematology and Oncology, Duke University Medical Center, Durham, NC.

Purpose: At our institution, a high proportion of children with onychocryptosis (ingrown toenail) requiring surgical intervention were noted to have a history of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). We analyzed the characteristics of patients who underwent surgical intervention for onychocryptosis and examined our institutional HSCT database to determine if an association exists between onychocryptosis and HSCT.

Materials And Methods: Surgical cases for onychocryptosis performed from 2000 to 2012 were identified. Read More

Posttraumatic Retronychia of the Foot with Clinical and Ultrasound Correlation.

J Am Podiatr Med Assoc 2017 May;107(3):253-256

Retronychia, the posterior embedding of the nail bed into the proximal nail fold, can be a complex clinical dermatologic diagnosis that may mimic other inflammatory ungual diseases or tumors of the nail. It has been related to a history of severe systemic conditions that secondarily affect the nail matrix and is commonly associated with onychomadesis. We present a case of retronychia of the foot with a purely traumatic origin, nonconcomitant with onychomadesis, that was diagnosed by color Doppler ultrasound in a long-time practitioner of martial arts who was otherwise healthy.

*Department of Dermatology, Orhangazi State Hospital, Bursa, Turkey; †Department of Dermatology, Yenişehir Hospital, Mersin, Turkey; ‡Department of Dermatology, Sistem Hospital, Mersin, Turkey; §Department of Dermatology, Mersin University, School of Medicine, Mersin, Turkey.

Background: Chemical matricectomy is performed mainly by 2 agents, phenol and sodium hydroxide. Chemical matricectomy with phenol has a low recurrence rate and good cosmetic results, but it produces extensive tissue destruction and can result in drainage and a delayed healing time. These adverse effects have brought forward the use of chemical agents such as sodium hydroxide and trichloroacetic acid for matricectomy. Read More

Orthopedist and Hand Surgeon, Department of Orthopedics and Traumatology, Hand and Upper Extremity Surgery Division, Konya Necmettin Erbakan University Meram School of Medicine, Konya, Turkey. Electronic address:

An important component of the Winograd surgical method for an ingrown toenail is total excision of the associated germinal matrix. However, this might not always be accomplished with the procedure. We hypothesized that the surgical results might be improved by adding electrocoagulation of the germinal matrix to the Winograd method. Read More

Paronychia is an inflammation of the tissues alongside the nail. It may be acute or chronic and can be seen in isolation or in association with an ingrowing toenail. Acute paronychial infections develop when a disruption occurs between the seal of the nail fold and the nail plate, providing a portal of entry for invading organisms. Read More

Centro de Dermatologia Epidermis, Instituto CUF, Porto, Portugal.

Retronychia represents proximal ingrowth of the nail that occurs when the nail embeds backwards into the proximal nail fold. It is suspected when there is a persistent paronychia, particularly in the setting of trauma. Important clinical criteria for diagnosis are inflammation of the proximal nail fold, granulation tissue emerging from under the nail fold, thickening of the proximal portion of the nail plate and interruption of nail growth.
