The yellow nail syndrome is a rare disease, in which there is a triad of lymphedema, pleural effusion and slow-growing dystrophic yellow nails. Many associations have already been described; among them, chronic respiratory tract diseases, autoimmune disorders, malignancies and immunodeficiency conditions. Only one third of cases in the literature show all findings. The case reported next is an example of the classical triad.

Yellow nail syndrome: not a genetic disorder? Eleven new cases and a review of the literature
There have been only a few published reports where a positive family history (FH) has been documented in cases of YNS, and YNS is classified as a dominantly inherited lymphoedema with variable expression. Expand
Yellow nail syndrome--the triad of yellow nails, lymphedema and pleural effusions. A review of the literature and a case report.
The yellow nail syndrome, combination of yellow discoloured nails, lymphedema and pleural effusions, is a rare clinical condition, and the pathogenesis seems to involve impaired lymphatic drainage. Expand
Yellow nail syndrome in rheumatoid arthritis: report of three cases.
The occurrence of the yellow nail syndrome in 3 patients with rheumatoid arthritis was related to severe chest infections, and there was evidence of immunodeficiency, consisting in 1 case of a persistently low serum IgA level and in the other of a generalised marrow suppression. Expand
Yellow nail syndrome. Possible association with malignancy.
A dramatic resolution of yellow nail deformity occurred in a 66-year-old man shortly after the removal of a carcinoma of the larynx, and there was no evidence of lymphedema, pleural effusion, sinusitis, or immunologic abnormalities. Expand
Yellow nail syndrome and onychomycosis. Experience with itraconazole pulse therapy combined with vitamin E.
The improvement of the yellow nails was however more discernible subsequent to the introduction of itraconazole pulse therapy for secondary onychomycosis suggesting an effect of this treatment on ungual growth. Expand
Yellow nail syndrome: does protein leakage play a role?
It is speculated that increased microvascular permeability may contribute to the pathogenesis of yellow nail syndrome, associated with persistent hypoalbuminaemia and increased enteric loss of albumin. Expand
Yellow nail syndrome as a cause of unexplained edema.
Yellow nail syndrome has to be considered in the differential diagnosis in cases of systemic edema, as well as long standing pleural effusions, particularly in patients with bronchiectasis or sinusitis, and should be ruled out. Expand
Yellow nail syndrome: analysis of 41 consecutive patients.
In most cases, YNS is an acquired disorder and associated respiratory manifestations are generally manageable with a regimen of medical and surgical treatments and yellow nails improve in about one half of patients, often without specific therapy. Expand
Pulmonary manifestations of the yellow nail syndrome.
The association of primary lymphedema with yellow discoloration of the nails has been termed the “yellow nail syndrome.” A third manifestation may be otherwise unexplained pleural effusion. PulmonaryExpand
Yellow Nail Syndrome in Three Siblings: A Randomized Double‐Blind Trial of Topical Vitamin E
Topical vitamin E did not result in a statistically significant improvement when compared with oil alone for the treatment of the nails in patients with yellow nail syndrome, but it is interesting and perhaps clinically useful that both vitamin E and placebo oil improved the condition of the nail.
