Nail pathologies should not be overlooked, as some presentations can be misleading. Any pigmented, budding, or monodactyly warty destructive lesion requires medical advice with possible histological analysis to rule out malignancy. Nail dystrophies may be manifestations of nail lichen planus, with the risk of permanent destruction of the nail apparatus. Collaboration between podistrists and physicians contributes to the early diagnosis of these conditions.
