     Skin Biopsy

Nail Biopsy

A nail biopsy is performed to diagnose clinically ambiguous nail lesions or dystrophies. The procedure consists of obtaining specimen of either nail plate, nail bed, nail matrix, proximal or lateral nail fold, hyponychium, alone or in combination for diagnostic purposes.
It is done for the following indications :

• To obtain diagnostic and prognostic information in presentations of an isolated nail pathology when
   routine diagnostic procedures fail to do so
• To differentiate an inflammatory etiology from an infectious etiology involving the nail unit
• To facilitate the early diagnosis of longitudinal pigmented streaks; malignant and benign tumors, of
   the nail unit
• To establish the presence of an underlying nail disease causing long-standing nail plate deformity
• To identify and treat the cause of pain (eg, ingrown nails, tumors)

Relative contraindications to this procedure are :

• Peripheral vascular disease
• Uncontrolled Diabetes mellitus
• Acute infection or inflammation of the nail unit
• Collagen vascular disease
• Disorders of hemostasis

In this procedure, local anaesthesia is given by a digital block, and the required specimen is obtained either by a punch or an elliptical excision biopsy and sent for histopoathological examination.
