Alopecia areata - Nail and Distal Digit
Patients with more severe AA are more likely to have nail changes. Nail changes may precede, follow, or coincide with the onset of hair loss.
In children, pitting, trachyonychia, and onychomadesis are the most common nail changes. Spotted lunulae are only seen in conjunction with pitting in children.
