Bushra Butul, Neda Fatima, Sumayya Fathima, Mohammed Nazim Uddin.


Onychomadesis is an idiopathic shedding of a proximal part of the nail as a result of the temporary suspension of a nail matrix function. It is seen in fingernails, toenails, or both. Various underlying causes like systemic illness, drug reactions, Viral diseases, and bullous diseases have been associated with Onychomadesis. However, the mechanism of any such association remains unclear. Here we present a case of On-ychomadesis and Beau lines in the fingernails of a 13-month-old girl following Hand, foot, and mouth disease.

Key words: Beau lines, Enterovirus, Hand-Foot-and-Mouth disease, Nails, Onychomadesis
