Onychomycosis


A fungal infection of the nail plate, usually caused by a species of Epidermophyton, Microsporum, or Trichophyton, and producing opaque, white, thickened, friable, and brittle nails. Onychomycosis is uncommon in children, but the incidence increases with age. Most cases of onychomycosis in children show no sign of infection in adjacent skin sites.
