This book is intended as a concise and practical guide to the treatment of nail problems through medical and surgical means. It is aimed at the general practitioner, dermatologist and podiatrist and the emphasis throughout is on practical procedures which are in the main relatively simple. Some procedures are more complicated and really require the additional advice of a tutor. There is no similar book on the market which digests the relevant practical points from larger works for those wishing only a concise overview of the principal practical aspects of the subject. After an introductory chapter on anatomy and physiology of the nail unit, the book goes on to describe infections of the nails, signs of systemic disease manifesting in the nails, dermatological diseases of the nails, occupational nail disorders, cosmetology and nail tumours. There then follows a section of nineteen practical procedures which are described step-by-step in detail.
