Nailed it

Case contributed by Dr Ian Bickle

Presentation

Incidental finding in a female perhaps not to pick a fight with on a night out.

Patient Data

Age: 29
Gender: Female
X-ray
  • Impressively long nails on all digits of both hands.
  • Highly suspicious of stick on nails.
  • No bone or joint abnormality.

Case Discussion

Incidental, but striking, appearance of beautified nails - almost certainly 'stick on' nails.

It would be wise to not get in a fight with the wearer of such fine nails and I imagine washing up is also rather troublesome.
