but are usually not the first clue to the diagnosis. Beaulines on several fingernails are very common in children after temperature crest. Tumors are rare in children. Radiographic examination allows confirmation of the diagnosis of subungual exostosis. Other cases should undergo biopsy. Single-digit longitudinal melanonychia in children is mostly due to nevi. Its management should be tailored on a case-by-case basis. Acute trauma should never be underestimated in children and hand surgeons should

The goal of induction therapy is to achieve a complete remission by reducing the number of leukemic cells to an undetectable level; the goal of consolidation therapy is to eliminate any residual undetectable disease and achieve a cure. Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation is usually considered if induction chemotherapy

Seasonal onychomadesis in an elderly gentleman A 79-year-old man with a history of dementia and hypertension initially presented with a ten year history of Beau'slines and seasonal nail shedding of his fingernails only. He denied any exposure to heavy metals, unusual activities or food. He stated that the seasonal nail shedding had been occurring for the last 5-10 years. On examination, six out of ten fingernails had been affected. He had significant toenail dystrophy. Fungal cultures and PAS
Development of Beau'slines in two patients receiving azathioprine. We report two cases of patients who developed Beau'slines while taking azathioprine. In each case, the patient developed a hypersensitivity reaction to the medication. These are the first reported cases of a hypersensitivity reaction to azathioprine leading to Beau'slines.

. Diarrhea, generalized alopecia and Beau-Reil lines on the nails are frequent manifestations. Paronychia, conjunctivitis, blepharitis and erythematous oral mucous membranes are also sometimes observed. Other features associated with severe and chronic zinc deficiency include failure to thrive, mental slowness, photophobia, hypogeusia, anemia, poor wound healing, hypogonadism in males, and delayed puberty. Etiology AE is due to a mutation in the SLC39A4 gene (8q24.3) that encodes a zinc transporter
Unilateral trachyonychia in a patient with reflex sympathetic dystrophy. Reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD) is a poorly understood neurovascular disorder characterized by pain, altered sensation, motor disturbance, soft tissue changes, vasomotor changes, and autonomic changes that occurs after trauma to an extremity. Unilateral leukonychia, Beau'slines, nailfold swelling, and nail clubbing have been an observed sequela of RSD. We present a case of a unilateral atypical trachyonychia occurring
A nail psoriasis severity index. The Psoriasis Area and Severity Index does not take the severity of nail involvement into account.To devise a system of scoring for nail psoriasis.A system of scoring for nail psoriasis was devised that takes into account the site of the pathology, i.e. (i) the matrix, (ii) the subungual tissues distal to the lunula, or (iii) the whole nail unit.The proposed scoring system evaluates several signs of nail psoriasis separately, each on a 1-3 scale: pitting, Beau's (...) lines, subungual hyperkeratosis and onycholysis.Using this classification it will be possible to assess and grade nail pathology simply and accurately.

This peeling, which often produces flakes of skin on the face, continues for several weeks. It also affects the tips of the fingers, the toes, axilla, groin and ears.
