ABSTRACT: Twenty-nail dystrophy (TND) is a rare disorder that has characteristic changes of all nails in the absence of skin changes 1. The nails are affected simultaneously and display opalescence, dullness, thinning, fragility and excessive longitudinal ridging. Because of rarity of this disorder and controversy surrounding its aetiopathogenesis, we herein describe a patient of TND who had associated mild ichthyosis and histopathogically showed eczematous changes of the nail matrix.
