Ingrowing nails are not uncommon in children, and even so receive little attention in the pediatric surgery literature. The purpose of the present study was to demonstrate our modification of the conservative treatment of ingrowing nails. Our technique of local treatment combined with patient education for better foot and toe care was successfully used and well tolerated by 19 out of 20 young patients with ingrown toenails.
