Chronic mucocutaneous candidiasis - Nail and Distal Digit
Nail involvement is common in patients with CMC. The affected nails often present with thickening, yellow-brown discoloration and subungual hyperkeratosis. Associated paronychia is common. There is often thickening of the soft tissues, resulting in a swollen distal phalanx that is more bulbous than clubbed.
Hyperkeratotic areas secondary to Candida invasion may develop in the proximal and lateral nail folds.
