Onychomycosis

Onychomycosis

History

          A 62-year-old man presented with chronic onychomycosis. On examination, mild paronychia, loss of cuticle of some nails, dirt-like yellowish-green nail pigmentation, subungual debris and dystrophy of some nails were seen. The condition started one year ago and involved both fingers’ and toes’ nails. The patient had no history of previous drug intake, diabetes mellitus or other causes of immunosuppression. Nail clipping yielded positive result for fungi.
