Abstract

An unusual, congenital, non-familial anomaly of all finger and toe nails was observed in a 33-yr-old woman. The presence of an atrophic nail plate, which was very soft, has led us to call this condition 'soft nail disease'. Histological and histochemical investigations have shown this to be an anatomical and functional defect of the nail matrix which is of unknown origin.
