Inflammatory and distrophic nail disorders in oncological patients

Maria MARIANO, Emanuela CARADONNA, Norma CAMELI

Istituto Dermatologico San Gallicano – IRCCS, Roma, Italia

Nail disorders in the oncological patient include alterations of the nail plate, nail bed and perionichio. Nails can show surface, shape, color and texture changes. Knowing how to recognize nail pathology, accurately identifying causative agents, administering appropriate treatment, and educating about prevention, are increasingly important aspects of everyday practice in the dermatological management of the oncologic patient.
