24 Possible Causes for Iron Deficiency Anemia, Onycholysis of Distal Nails

  • Cronkhite-Canada Syndrome

    All of these lead to onycholysis, which means detachment of the nail from the nail bed, starting at its distal and/or lateral attachment.[] Because of iron deficiency anemia and occult gastrointestinal bleeding, she underwent a colonoscopic examination. Colonoscopy revealed multiple broad-based polyps.[] It is accompanied by a protein-losing enteropathy, significant weight loss, iron deficiency anemia, and vitamin deficiencies.[]

  • Onycholysis

    We have observed a number of cases of onycholysis in which the distal nail bed appeared to shrink.[] As an initial screen for associated systemic disorders, it is reasonable to check a complete blood count and iron panel (for iron deficiency anemia), an antinuclear antibody[] An uncommon manifestation of phototoxicity, photo-onycholysis results in the separation of the distal nail from the nail bed.[]

  • Hereditary Koilonychia

    What you’ll see: Distal separation of the nail plate from the underlying nail bed.[] Koilonychia, also known as spoon nails, [1] : 782 is a nail disease that can be a sign of hypochromic anemia, especially iron-deficiency anemia. [2] : 656 [3] It refers to[] The most common cause of koilonychia is chronic iron deficiency anemia. 7,8 Iron deficiency can result from several causes including malnutrition, gastrointestinal bleeding[]

  • Hereditary Distal Onycholysis

    Psoriatic nails often have a horizontal white or yellow margin at the tip of the nail called distal onycholysis because the nail is lifted away from the skin.[] deficiency anemia.[] Onycholysis is characterized by a spontaneous separation of the nail plate starting at the distal free margin and progressing proximally.[]

  • Psoriasis

    Fingernails and toenails often exhibit small pits (pinpoint depressions) and/or larger yellowish-brown separations of the nail from the nail bed at the fingertip called distal[] Prevalence of occult celiac disease in patients with iron-deficiency anemia: a prospective study. South Med. J. 97, 30–34 (2004). 26. Murray, J. A. et al.[] Onycholysis allows air to enter the distal end of the nail plate leading to white color [27] [Figure 5] and [Figure 6].[]

  • Psoriatic Arthritis

    Psoriatic nail pitting and onycholysis ( Figures 2 and 3 ) are additional features often correlated with distal interphalangeal joint involvement.[] If you have symptoms associated with celiac disease, such as diarrhea, flatulence, fatigue, and iron-deficiency anemia, your doctor likely will test you for celiac antibodies[]

  • Congenital Clubbing

    Onycholysis can accompany psoriasis when the distal portion of the nail matrix is affected.[] deficiency anemia 1 Reply congenital / hereditary clubbing usually does not have any systemic manifestation Autosomal dominant 11 Reply iron deficiency anemia 1 Reply Definitely[] Nail changes may occasionally be the only clinical sign, and they are typically limited to one portion of the nail and include findings such as longitudinal fissuring, onycholysis[]

  • Subungual Fibroma

    Onycholysis (nail plate disorder due to trauma) Loosening or separation of the nail from the nail bed.[] Makes transparent nail plate appear opaque Onycholysis Spontaneous separation of the nail beginning with the matrix extending to the free edge.[] Hereditary is some cases but is also associated with iron deficiency anemia in children.[]

  • Nail Abnormality

    Onycholysis can accompany psoriasis when the distal portion of the nail matrix is affected.[] NAIL ABNORMALITIES Discolored Nails White nails  Cirrhosis  HF  DM  Iron deficiency anemia  Chemotherapy  Overactive thyroid  Malnutrition 8.[] This disorder is associated with iron deficiency anemia. Leukonychia is white streaks or spots on the nails.[]

  • Trachonychia

    (D) Oil staining, distal onycholysis, longitudinal ridging, adherence of the cuticle to the distal nail plate.[] Koilonychia (from the Greek: koilos-, hollow, onikh-, nail), also known as spoon nails, is a nail disease that can be a sign of hypochromic anemia, especially iron-deficiency[] Spoon shaped nails - trasnverse or longitudinal concavity of the nail Often normal in infants Can be a result of disease like anemia, exposure to solvents, iron deficiency[]
