INTRODUCTION

The human nail shields the distal digit from harm, assists in the picking-up of small objects, improves fine touch, and enhances the aesthetic appearance of the hand [1]. Aesthetically displeasing nails and nail-associated symptoms such as pain or throbbing are common factors that contribute to a patient's decision to seek medical attention.

This topic will discuss the clinical features, diagnosis, and treatment of common acquired nail disorders. Nail dermoscopy, nail surgery, nail biopsy techniques, and hereditary nail disorders are discussed separately.

(See "Dermoscopy of nail pigmentations".)
