Nail Tumors

A wide range of tumors can affect the nail apparatus, due to its morphological complexity. Tumors of the nail apparatus may affect, primarily or secondarily, the nail matrix or nail bed, surrounding epidermis, dermis, hypodermis, blood vessels, adnexal glands and osteocartilaginous structures. Thus, a lesion of the proximal nail fold can cause secondary changes in the nail plate owing to nail matrix compression.

Nail imaging (X-ray, ultrasound, tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging) are helpful in the diagnostic investigation, but the histopathology remains as the gold standard method. Depending on the origin and aggressiveness of the lesion, different therapeutic approaches can be performed, since topical medications to Mohs micrographic surgery. In general, surgical management is the treatment of choice.
