A simple technique for punch biopsies of nails is described. Local anesthesia with a solution of lidocaine, without epinephrine, is used. Digital block and tourniquet hemostasis are not required. The simplicity of the method ought to encourage more nail biopsies, increase the accuracy of diagnosis and improve treatment of diseases of the nails.
