Conference paper

Abstract

The papers included in this workshop have been chosen to encompass as much as can usefully be included on the structure and function of the nail apparatus in health and disease. In our travels around the world lecturing in this field, we are constantly reminded that many clinicians who treat nail abnormalities have relatively poor insight into the functional anatomy; such knowledge is very important in the diagnosis and management of melanoma, genetic anomalies and in surgical treatments. We will therefore spend a significant part of the session describing pathology in relation to normal structure.
