A variety of individual nail dystrophies that are not categorized easily in other articles are reviewed. Onychoatrophia, anonychia, onychorrhexis, leukonychia, Beau's lines, onycholysis, onychomadesis, onychoschizia, haplonychia, longitudinal melanonychia, and ventral pterygium are included and pictured clinically. Their clinical description, etiology,… (More)

A study on the incidence and causative organisms of pedal superficial white onychomycosis within several patient populations is presented. Early recognition, debridement, and topical antifungal therapy for several weeks with attention to biomechanical factors should resolve the infection and prevent progression to a more destructive form of onychomycosis.
We report two cases of biopsy-confirmed Kyrle disease. Kyrle disease is one of the perforating dermatoses associated with diabetic patients undergoing renal dialysis. In this report, we describe the clinical and histopathologic features, the differential diagnoses, and successful treatment of this unusual disorder.
