Description

The human nail provides a complex structure that supports fine manipulation of objects while protecting the extremities. Diseases of the nail disrupt this function. They can cause pain and discomfort, cause disfigurement and are often unsightly with a profound effect on the sufferer's self-confidence.

The 13 chapters encompass the scientific and clinical management of all abnormalities of the nails including: imaging of the nail unit; the nail in dermatologic disease; the nail in systemic disease; congenital and hereditary nail disorders; cosmetics and nail adornment; and surgery of the nail.
