Onycholysis is the distal and/or lateral separation of the nail from the nail bed. Although it can be idiopathic, there are several factors associated with the development of this condition. Ischemia is recognized as one of the possible causes, but this relationship has been poorly described in the literature. We report a case of onycholysis with a striking clinical picture and discuss the role of ischemia in the development of the lesions.
