Yellow nail syndrome (pulmonary manifestations)

Last revised by Sonam Vadera on 28 Oct 2022

Pulmonary manifestations of yellow nail syndrome are principally centered around

  • chronic cough

  • effects for recurrent lung infections (bronchiectasis) and

  • pleural effusions

The role of proposed lymphatic impairment could account for the development of pleural effusions and smooth interlobular septal thickening. Very rarely, a diffuse panbronchiolitis like picture has also been described 4.
